Breakfast At Tiffany's (DVD)
Winner of two Oscars®, here's the romantic comedy that sparkles like dia monds! From the opening strains of Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer's hau nting, Oscar®-winning song "Moon River," you'll once again be under the alluring spell of that madcap, carefree New York playgirl known as Holl y Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) in this 24-carat romantic comedy based on T ruman Capote's best-selling novella. George Peppard is the struggling a nd "sponsored" young writer who finds himself swept into Holly's dizzyin g, delightfully unstructu red lifestyle as she determinedly scours Manha ttan for a suitable millionaire to marry. The sparkling special feature s on this Anni versary Edition DVD only add to the luster of director Bl ake Edwards' timeless film classic. Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Bal sam and Mickey Rooney co-star; Mancini won an additional Academy Awa rd® for his enthralling musical score.]]>

At the time I was single and very munch identified with the two characters. No I wasn't a kept man or woman but I did have things holding me back and was single and lonely. It was a philosophical time and while in college I questioned many times what really is true love.
This movie gave me a glimpse of that. The male lead was George Peppard who started out a kept man and Audrey Hepburn was in many ways the same. I won't give the ending out but it is a real tearjerker. Plenty of tissues are recommended.
This was in many ways a somewhat controversial film at the time it was made. It dealt with issues like selling oneself for money and has in more contemporary culture been criticized as being a bit culturally insensitive at times as Micky Rooney plays an Asian man. Buddy Ebson also has a cameo where he plays a character that is a bit controversial in a way as well.
The primary issue in my opinion addressed here is would you pick money over love. Are you willing to change for love. In case you don't know the actors and actresses. Buddy Ebson was Jed on the Beverly hillbillies and George Peppard was Hannibal on the show the A-team. I assume most know Audrey and Mickey. The viewer is treated to Audrey singing beautifully the theme song Moon River during the movie.
I would recommend this movie for people who enjoy costumes from the 60's. The soundtrack is beautiful and rendered by good old Henry Mancini. He won a Grammy for the music.
I highly recommend and my very favorite Hepburn movie.
What I did not like about this movie was the very racist depiction of Mr. Yunioshi (Holly Golightly's New York City apartment landlord). This movie was made during the 1960s when the United States was not completely accepting of all cultures, and its portrayal of Asians was really not too nice. But other than that, I really loved Audrey Hepburn's and George Peppard's classic performances, as well as the rest of the "Breakfast at Tiffany's" cast! Furthermore, I love one of the very important lessons in life that Paul Varjak teaches Holly Golightly - money can not buy happiness. People do fall in love and want to belong to each other in hopes of achieving true happiness in life.
Some people are too shallow to understand movies like this, and you can see that in the one-star comments.
Just to help some folks understand, the title Breakfast at Tiffany's refers to Holly's belief that at Tiffany's "nothing bad can ever happen to you."
It's a central theme of the movie... the need for security and safety.
1/5 to the beautiful Hepburn,
1/5 to the cat Orangey.
Orangey is the best actor of the film, great blocking, great action, he took all my attentions from the movie.
The plot is not cliche overall, although I don't agree with the values of the movie characters and disagreed with its happy ending's possibilities. But consider it was a movie from the 60s, they could be adoptable back to the days because women really didn't have so many chances. Holly just a girl run from her town at age 14, without any education nor helps, it wasn't surprising that she ends up work as an escort. Just like the sentences, Is she a phony? She is a real phony, believed in all the fantasies: People do fall in love, people do belong each other.
