Our May series of Monday Night Classics continues, as Audrey Hepburn lights up the screen in Blake Edwards’ iconic comedy “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
The names Audrey Hepburn and Holly Golightly have become synonymous since this dazzling romance was translated to the screen from Truman Capote’s best-selling novella. Holly is a deliciously eccentric New York City playgirl determined to marry a Brazilian millionaire. George Peppard plays her next-door neighbor, a writer who is “sponsored” by a wealthy Patricia Neal.
Guessing who’s the right man for Holly is easy. Seeing just how that romance blossoms is one of the enduring delights of this gem — as are Henry Mancini’s Oscar-winning score and the Oscar-winning Mancini-Johnny Mercer song “Moon River.”
