Sir Felix helped to kick-start Hepburn's career when he agreed to give her acting and elocution lessons as she tried to establish herself in West End theatre productions.

当赫本努力在伦敦西区剧院站住脚跟时,菲利克斯爵士同意给赫本上表演课和朗诵课,帮她的事业起步。

The pair formed a relationship that developed into a lifelong friendship, and as her career took off Hepburn wrote letters and sent postcards to Sir Felix from film sets.

两人间的关系后来演变成了延续一生的友情。在事业起飞的日子里,赫本从片场给菲利克斯爵士写信、寄明信片。

Experts say the notes, which are being sold by Sir Felix's family for the first time, offer a unique window into the life of the notoriously private star.

专家说,这是菲利克斯家族首次拍卖这些信件,人们得以从独特的视角来一窥这位巨星极为隐秘的私生活。

The archive includes a 1951 postcard Hepburn sent from the set of Monte Carlo Baby, her first big film, in which she wrote: 'Would you believe it, I'm in Monte Carlo working on a French Picture * this place is heavenly.'

信件中还包括赫本1951年从《蒙特卡洛宝贝》片场寄出的一张明信片。《蒙特卡洛宝贝》是赫本拍摄的第一部大制作电影。她在明信片中写道:“您能相信么,我正在蒙特卡洛(摩纳哥城市)拍一部法国片。这个地方美极了。”

The following year Hepburn got engaged to wealthy industrialist James Hanson, but later called the marriage off fearing the two would spend too much time apart.

寄明信片的第二年,赫本与富有的实业家詹姆斯?汉森订了婚,但后来因担心会和未婚夫长久分隔两地而取消了婚约。

She immediately put pen to paper, writing to Sir Felix: 'It is with a heavy heart I am writing to tell you James Hanson and I are no longer engaged, I know there is little I need explain to you, a gentleman of this profession. '

她立刻提笔写信给菲利克斯爵士:“我怀着沉重的心情告诉您,我和詹姆斯?汉森的婚约已经取消。我知道我不必向您这样同在演艺行业的绅士多作解释。”

Hepburn also wrote to Sir Felix in 1960 when her son Sean was born.

1960年赫本的儿子肖恩出生时,她也给菲利克斯爵士写了信。

She wrote afterwards: 'Sean is truly a dream, and I find it hard to believe he is ours to keep. I long to show him to you.'

她写道:“肖恩就像梦一样美好,我难以相信他就是我们的孩子。我很想让你看看他。”
