Breakfast At Tiffany's

There was a 50th anniversary screening of Breakfast at Tiffany's the other night at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Jay Weston did a wonderful blog post about it and the film that you can read here: Jay Weston's Huff post blog

We've always loved this movie. A young George Peppard paired with the gorgeous young Audrey Hepburn in New York City and you can't really go wrong. Add Tiffany's jewelry store, Sing Sing prison, apartment parties, an orange tabby cat, the rain and let the romance run wild.

If you've never seen the movie, then surely you've seen THE ICONIC pics of Audrey in her skinny pants or LBD and for sure you've heard the song Moon River. A song written just for Audrey which became the Academy Award Winner that year.

Blake Edwards directed this film. Edwards of Pink Panther fame and of course, Julie Andrews real life husband.

One caveat...okay, two...Mickey Rooney does his best to ruin the film, not intentionally of course, but he does and two, they NEVER stop smoking. To quote Methos "It was the times."

Go and rent Breakfast at Tiffany's. It's a fun wild ride depicting those fun wild times. And you'll never forget the name Holly Golightly.

And it was about a girl in NYC light years ahead of Sex and the City that had more fun, style, grace and class in her small toe than those 4 annoying ugly sluts on the TV show ever had in their entire bodies or careers all put together.
