Breakfast af Tiffany's

Starring Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Buddy Ebsen, and Mickey Rooney

Directed by Blake Edwards

Release Date: October 5th, 1961

In New York, a budding writer (Peppard) has met a most interesting person: wild and free socialite Holly Golightly (Hepburn). Dubbing him Fred, Miss Golightly soon becomes an integral part of the young man's life, falling in love with her while trying to understand the mystery of Holly Golightly. As Paul a.k.a Fred tries to melt the heart of Holly, she is attempting to woo the richest men in the country for her own reasons.

Audrey Hepburn was a marvelous actress, a beauty that few have surpassed and Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of her crowing achievements among her marvelous career. The film has a few problems, but the biggest is Mickey Rooney's racist depiction of an asian man; suffice it to say, the screenwriter should have been embarrassed to create such a caricature, even in 1961.Also, despite how amazing Hepburn is, Pepard is merely playing the reliable boy-friend role in the film. I liked Peppard in the film, but it clear to see that Hepburn is truly the more energetic/memorable of the two; Peppard is just good. Still, Breakfast at Tiffany's is a wonderful romantic comedy that made Hepburn an icon.
