Product Description
"Breakfast At Tiffany's" is a mid sixties American romantic comedy starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. The story is loosely based on a novella by Truman Capote. In 2012 this film was said to be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and preserved in the National Film Registry. Ms. Hepburn plays Holly Golightly, a naive, eccentric society girl. Holly is beautiful and fun and her total goal in life is to marry a man who has a lot of money! Paul, Holly's neighbor is a struggling writer who falls in love with Holly. He chastises her for still wanting to leave for Brazil to pursue Jose' when Jose' says they are finished. Holly is a 'throw all things to the wind, let them land where they may' and releases her pet cat in the rain. Paul confronts Holly about his love for her and insists she seriously examine her shallow life. Holly thinks for a moment, runs after Paul, and they search for her cat and embrace. The music swells. This film might be thought of as being shallow, but it was glamorous in its day, and Audrey Hepburn was a big important star.(This is clearly pre-feminist movie-making and needs to be examined as such). I think what catapults this film into the company of 'classics' is the musical score by Henry Mancini, most notably the theme song "Moon River"(won an Oscar for Best Song) which plays over and over throughout the film.
