Photograph caption dated February 28, 1956 reads, "Audrey Hepburn, looking fresh and wide awake despite an overnight flight from Paris, landed late yesterday afternoon at International Airport minus her husband, actor Mel Ferrer. 'But he'll be along in about three weeks,' Miss Hepburn smiled. 'He's still in Europe making a picture with Ingrid Bergman.' Miss Hepburn was met by Roger Edens and Stanley Donen, who respectively will produce and direct 'Funny Face,' in which she co-stars with Fred Astaire. It's her first musical and she reports to Paramount today for six weeks dance rehearsal before the film goes into production. 'Then we'll go all the way back to Paris to photograph a number in which Fred and I dance through the streets and past many famous landmarks,' she said. 'Funny Face' will be the Academy Award winner's first American picture in close to three years. She has been in Rome for a year making 'War and Peace' in which she co-stars with her husband."
