"Breakfast at Tiffany's" would have to be one of my favorite movies of all time. and i do so love a good ol' fashioned 1960's film, including some Elvis and a little humor from the hilarious (then) Jerry Lewis. but Audrey Hepburn's character "Holly Golightly" is famous around the globe, even to the point of graffiti stencil art on city buildings.
in the film, Holly Golightly plays an eccentric social butterfly/cafe society girl, who is accepting money to pass on coded messages to a drug runner in sing sing prison, but all the while playing innocently ignorant of the entire ordeal. the story is based on the life of a beautiful society page girl and her neighbor, who is played by George Peppard (also known from the TV series "The A Team", which is how i grew up with George). the real star of the movie is the "Cat", who is constantly getting into all sorts of trouble and is seen here pictured with Blythe Golightly.
when i was still living in Oklahoma City, the Museum of Art had a film week program, and they showed "Breakfast at Tiffany's" one week back in 2004. so my friend Erin asked me to go but we had to dress up as Holly Golightly, about which i was ecstatic beyond all belief!
needless to say, we did attract some strange glances, but everybody who spoke to us knew who we were dressed up to be. i think someone even called me "Ms. Gorightree" (from the chinese upstairs neighbor character, played by Mickey Rooney).
