In the film Roman Holiday (1953), Audrey Hepburn's character Princess Ann drunkenly recites the lines "Arethusa arose / From her couch of snows / In the Acroceraunian mountains" from her "favorite poem," "Arethusa," which she repeatedly attributes to Keats; Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) corrects "Shelley."
