Breakfast at Tiffany’s: The Play (again)

7 Comments 06 October 2009

I blame this on being out of the country and away from computers when the story was confirmed, but have you all heard about the stage production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s now on in London? It previewed at the end of September and is now running at the Theatre Royal Haymarket until the end of January 2010. Interesting…

Does anyone have any inclination to see it?

Audrey Auctions

5 Comments 04 October 2009

Now that I’m laid up in bed for a day, I have time to share some auction news with you! (Before I must finish some homework, that is.) First, Lyon & Turnbull in London just had a rather large Modern and Contemporary Art auction yesterday, and featured a few pictures of Audrey photographed by Bob Willoughby and a couple other photographers. From what I can tell, two of the five prints were sold, and went for £400 and £600, not a bad price!

Why Can’t I Be Audrey Hepburn?

1 Comment 13 August 2009

Thank you all for your ongoing patience here. I’m in the midst of moving (yes, again) and I start a whopping 16 units of school next week, so needless to say, I’m a bit crazy right now.

I hope you’ve been enjoying the pictures from the Timeless Audrey exhibit! Perhaps someday soon when I have a free day (hah!), I can maybe drop by the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund office and ask if they need help and maybe suss out some information, like where the exhibit will go next. You should all have the chance to see it in person! I shall try for you.

In the meantime, my brother-in-law unearthed the script for Why Can’t I Be Audrey Hepburn? among his things and lent it to me. Not sure if it was for my screenwriting class that I’ll be taking, or because I’m somewhat enamored of the lady, but after hearing about this script (and the rumors surrounding it) for ages, I can’t wait to read it!

It’s that time again . . .

Comments Off on It’s that time again . . . 26 May 2009

Time for summer film screenings in the park! I love this part of summer. This morning I went over to Facebook, the only way I know what’s going on with any of my friends, and found an update from Cinespia, the group that does the film screenings in the Hollywood Forever cemetery. They just posted their June schedule, and it’s always a good sign when they put a picture of Audrey next to their post. 🙂

Zum Geburtstag viel Glück!

Comments Off on Zum Geburtstag viel Glück! 05 May 2009

I’m still in Germany right now, but somewhere in the world it’s still May 4th and Audrey’s birthday. So I’m not really late. 🙂 Went to the Timeless Audrey exhibit, of course, and thanks to dear Daniel Acksteiner got to see the award ceremony for the 2009 Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award. I’m using other people’s computers until I get back home and my cable to hookup the camera is in my hotel room, so I’m afraid there’s no pictures yet. When I get back to Paris, promise. 🙂 In the meantime, wish Audrey a happy 80th birthday in your own special way, even if it’s just watching your favourite movie of hers, and have a great rest of the day.

More later . . .

Charmed by Audrey: Life on the Set of Sabrina

Comments Off on Charmed by Audrey: Life on the Set of Sabrina 29 April 2009

As you may have read, the gallery exhibit opening/book signing for the new picture book Charmed by Audrey: Life on the Set of Sabrina was last night. It was held in a pretty little Swedish furniture shop in Los Angeles near Hollywood, and there was quite a crowd packed in between the end tables and sleek armchairs! The photographer’s son, David Shaw, was onhand to sign copies of the book and he was kind enough to field my questions for a few minutes about discovering what were thought to be long-lost negatives of his dad Mark Shaw’s work with Audrey for Life Magazine.

Be a part of Audrey

Comments Off on Be a part of Audrey 28 April 2009

This time, my friends, there’s good reason for my not updating regularly. I’ve been sitting on this as long as I can, but now I must share: I will be in Berlin for the Timeless Audrey exhibit on May 4, Audrey’s birthday! I haven’t found any details yet but I know that something special is happening on what would have been our fair lady’s 80th birthday, so you shall know shortly after I do. 🙂 I will, of course, be taking loads of pictures where I can (there’s no photos allowed in the exhibit, but I’ll see what I can do in the name of journalistic integrity) and bringing back as much information as possible for everyone that can’t just jump out to Germany at the drop of a hat. (There’s also rumors that the exhibit may be coming back to the US for a mini-tour, but nothing is confirmed.)

Something for the L.A. fans

Comments Off on Something for the L.A. fans 10 April 2009

Whew, it’s been hectic around here lately! I think things may settle down around September or October, but until then, be prepared for more sporadic — yet cool — updates. 🙂 Just a short while ago I received a letter about a new gallery exhibit opening at the end of the month in Los Angeles, and it coincides with a new book on Audrey. Double the goodies!

The book is called Charmed By Audrey: Life on the Set of Sabrina, and from what I can tell it’s mainly a picture book featuring loads of snaps from photographer Mark Shaw. Have a gander at the cover of the book (left), I know you know his work.

My Fair Lady on the big screen

Comments Off on My Fair Lady on the big screen 30 March 2009

This past Friday I was lucky enough to finally see My Fair Lady on the big screen. The Academy (you know, the ones who hand out the Oscars) was holding a special 70mm screening of the restored original print, and apparently the 70mm version hasn’t been screened since the film was first released 45 years ago. After seeing it for myself, I have to say it’s downright tragic. The colours were fantastic, especially the flower segments during the opening credits, and I could just see so much more than I ever have before. You could actually read the elocution cards tacked all over Eliza’s bedroom walls, and the more subtle facial expressions were just divine. The mix of emotions that came over Rex Harrison’s face in that final scene was incredible. It actually brought tears to my eyes.
