how Cameron Crowe fell in love with Audrey Hepburn

Comments Off on how Cameron Crowe fell in love with Audrey Hepburn 06 March 2007

On iFilm there’s an interview with director Cameron Crowe about Elizabethtown, and he’s asked about his obsession with Audrey Hepburn. If you’re not familiar with his films, in Vanilla Sky there is a Sabrina reference, in Jerry Maguire there’s the line “That’s more than a dress; that’s an Audrey Hepburn movie,” and in Elizabethtown there’s footage of Roman Holiday (besides “Moon River” playing throughout the film and the obvious Kirsten Dunst as a modern Holly Golightly bit throughout as well). I won’t ruin it for you, so just click the link above to go to the video. It’s short at just under 3 minutes, so the interviewer doesn’t have a chance to get too annoying. 🙂

As a special bonus, here is an animation of cute little Parisian kitties prancing about to the tune of the instrumental “Bonjour Paris” from the Funny Face soundtrack. Such a great little song! Thank you to the shy one who sent this video in.

To read more about Morley and his life, go here.
