Product Description


No film better utilizes Audrey Hepburn's flighty charm and svelte beauty than this romantic adaptation of Truman Capote's novella. Hepburn's urban sophisticate Holly Golightly, an enchanting neurotic living off the gifts of gentlemen, is a bewitching figure in designer dresses and costume jewelry. George Peppard is her upstairs neighbor, a struggling writer and "kept" man financed by a steely older woman (Patricia Neal). His growing friendship with the lonely Holly soon turns to love and threatens the delicate balance of both of their compromised lives. Taking liberties with Capote's bittersweet story, director Blake Edwards and screenwriter George Axelrod turn New York into a city of lovers and create a poignant portrait of Holly, a frustrated romantic with a secret past and a hidden vulnerability. Composer Henry Mancini earned Oscars for the hit song "Moon River" and his tastefully romantic score. The only sour note in the whole film is Mickey Rooney's demeaning performance as the apartment's Japanese manager, an offensively overdone stereotype even in 1961. The rest of the film has weathered the decades well. Edwards's elegant yet light touch, Axelrod's generous screenplay, and Hepburn's mix of knowing experience and naiveté combine to create one of the great screen romances and a refined slice of high society bohemian chic. --Sean Axmaker

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a lot of world to see Jan. 10 2009
Audrey Hepburn had a lot of memorable, glamorous roles as highly individual, sensitive young women.

But her most iconic turn was as Holly Golightly, a frivolous young woman with a highly sensitive core. Hepburn is a ball of shimmering charm here, whether she's setting hats on fire or chasing nameless cats through the rain, and she's able to shine brightly enough to obscure a few flaws (such as Mickey Rooney). The other actors do serviceable jobs, but she's undeniablythe star.

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is a daily ritual for Holly Golightly (Hepburn), a social butterfly who hosts parties, entertains drunken men for their fifty-dollartips, and dreams of owning a horse farm in Mexico with her brother. When kept-man Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into a neighboring apartment -- courtesy of his rich patroness -- he is instantly enchanted by the ditzy, sweet-natured Holly.

But for all Holly's fun, Paul starts to realize that all is not well with her. She's desperate to marry a spectacularly wealthy man, parties with wild crowds, visits a notorious gangster in jail, and hides that she was an illiterate teen bride to a hick doctor. As Holly's life starts to deteriorate, Paul sets out to show her what her life will be like without real love.

Reportedly Truman Capote wasn't happy with the movie version of "Breakfast At Tiffany's" -- they changed the ending from his short story's, and he didn't like Hepburn as Holly Golightley. But this is one case where the movie's quality is not reflected by what the author thought of it -- taken on its own merits, it's a fine chocolate with a bittersweet center.

Much of the movie is devoted to the friendship (and unspoken attraction) between Holly and Paul, and how it disrupts their comfortable shallow lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST Buy for Hepburn fans! July 23 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
THE iconic Audrey Hepburn role. No one who is even remotely a fan can be without this one. The studio has done an amazing job with this movie. It looks like it was filmed yesterday, not over 50 years ago. Everything is sharp as a tack and the colour is wonderful. Not a mark, speckle, or blemish to be seen. The sound has also be remixed in 5.1. Although not as startling an improvement as the picture, it is still a step up, especially with the wonderful Mancini music. The only drawback to the picture is the portrayal by Mickey Rooney of the upstairs JAPANESE neighbour. Seems very out of place by the standards of today, but this was 1961 and this was not uncommon for Hollywood back then. (Even Katharine Hepburn and John Wayne played Chinese roles in different movies!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful restoration Nov. 4 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this movie to anyone who has suffered through the video cassette or early dvd version. The restoration
looks perfect and it was a treat to see what New York City looked like in the early 1960's.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Society Parties April 5 2014
By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
Breakfast At Tiffany’s involves a woman who has impeccable social skills and manages to become known in high society circles. She meets a writer who becomes a major part of her life and contributes to her personal evolution. Audrey Hepburn plays this highly sociable woman while George Peppard plays the writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Audrey Hepburn's best film (my opinion) Oct. 25 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The world (and New York) would not be as great a place as it is without this film! Even the weird and unexplicable Mr. Yunioshi character played by Micky Rooney (Blake Edwards says on the extras he would not do that role the same way if he was making the film now) cannot spoil the fun. Another film I can watch over and over again.
