Breakfast at Tiffany’s 50th Anniversary!!!

A 1961 romantic comedy film starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney. The film was directed by Blake Edwards and released by Paramount Pictures. It was loosely based on the novella of the same name by Truman Capote.

Hepburn’s portrayal of Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric café society girl is generally considered to be the actress’ most memorable and identifiable role. She herself regarded it as one of her most challenging roles, since she was an introvert required to play an extrovert. Hepburn’s performance of “Moon River” helped composer Henry Mancini and lyricist Johnny Mercer win an Oscar for Best Song.

The parade of classic films debuting on Blu-ray this fall continues, with Breakfast at Tiffany’s as the latest addition. Paramount has announced a restored and remastered 50th Anniversary edition it will release September 20th complete with the option of a 5.1 DTS-HD MA soundtrack or restored mono audio track. Other special features include a producer commentary and featurettes on topics including the star Audrey Hepburn‘s style. Check out Amazon and preorder it now!

  1. I love the scene where she sits in the window singing Moon River and playing the guitar. I simply fell in love with the song when I saw that. Also, when she stands outside Tiffany’s with her breakfast.

  2. My wife’s favorite movie.

  3. It sounds cliche, but I love watching her eat her breakfast outside Tiffany’s! The first time I visited NYC, I made sure I did the exact same thing! Of course, I didn’t look nearly as glamorous as Holly Golightly, but it was an amazing feeling knowing I was somehow channeling the incomparable Audrey Hepburn. She truly was an amazing person-and this is an amazing film!
