BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961) - Based on the novel by Truman Capote and directed by Blake Edwards, this unforgettable gem of a romantic comedy stars the incomparable Audrey Hepburn at the height of her beauty and talent. Hepburn is mesmerizing as Holly Golightly, a Manhattan party girl who doesn't quite grasp when parties end and reality begins. Sharing Holly's lifestyle is handsome young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard). No matter what scrape Holly manages to get into, Paul is always there to pick up the pieces. But Paul is trying to make something of himself and Holly is trying to create something of herself. Will Holly realize that there's more to life than being kept in a style to which she's become accustomed? Will Paul ever convince Holly that he deserves more from her than "brotherly" love? Micky Rooney as Holly's Japanese landlord, O.J. Berman as Holly's Hollywood agent, Patricia Neal as Paul's patron, and Buddy Epsen as Holly's ex-husband round out a perfect cast delivering peak performances. Henri Mancini's musical score and the song "Moon River" sung by Audrey Hepburn earned Oscars. [more...]
