The most hilarious heroine who ever rumpled the pages of a best-selling novel...is on the screen! She starts with breakfast at Tiffany's and then sparkles her way through everything you've ever wanted to do! See more »
Included among the American Film Institute's Top 100 Greatest Songs for "Moon River," in fourth position right after "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", "As Time Goes By" and "Singin' in the Rain". See more »
In the opening scene, Holly's taxi is traveling NORTH on Fifth Avenue to drop her off at Tiffany's. True, the street is deserted because of the early morning hour, but traffic on Fifth Avenue travels SOUTH (downtown). See more »
Even now 57 years after its original release, Breakfast At Tiffany's remains a charming love story between two hustlers of sorts. Audrey Hepburn is not the Holy Golightly that Truman Capote intended, she couldn't be but she was Audrey Hepburn in all of her 1961 glory. Amazing how it still works that Audrey Hepbun touch. George Peppard is gorgeous but impenetrable. Mickey Rooney, unforgivable. Henry Mancini, opportune but. strangely enough the character that fascinated me the most in my latest viewing is Patricia Neal. I would love to see a full movie about that woman. She exudes sensuality and smartness. Blake Edwards concocts a lighter fare from Capote's book and as it happens, it's still very much alive and surprisingly relevant.
