“Breakfast At Tiffany’s” author Truman Capote intended the leading role of Holly Golightly to go to his neighbor Marilyn Monroe for the film version of his novella, but Audrey Hepburn was destined to claim the role for her most memorable film character.
Holly is a chic but immature Manhattanite escort on the prowl for a rich daddy to marry when Fred (George Peppard), a new neighbor, distracts her from her ambitions.
New York City plays a starring role.
Ah, Manhattan in the '60s.
Fred is a wannabe writer being kept by an older woman, and as such is a male version of Holly. Unity of opposites reflect in each other's eyes.
Although the movie won Oscars for music and song (“Moon River”) by Henry Mancini, “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” has a dark underbelly and unlikable characters made attractive by their eccentric behavior and expensive wardrobes.
Blake Edwards directed this classic 1961 Hollywood movie that made Audrey Hepburn an icon for the ages.
Rated PG.115 min.
