The Making of a Classic

Comments Off on The Making of a Classic 17 May 2007

Plus, yet another fun summer outing involving Audrey Hepburn! This time it’s a screening of How to Steal a Million at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas on July 26 and 27. I’ve glanced over their full summer lineup and it is amazing, to say the least. I’m very jealous.

Is Holly Golightly R-rated?

Comments Off on Is Holly Golightly R-rated? 11 May 2007

Smoking in films has happened since, well, the invention of moving pictures. In fact, smoking is downright iconic in some films. But the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) is finally changing their film rating system after years of pressure from advocacy groups. Films are rated on their content, and a stricter rating is given depending on violence, sexual content, and other mitigating factors. Now smoking will be one of them. If a film is viewed as glamorizing smoking, it will be given a harsher rating. I highly doubt they are going to retroactively rate older films, but can you imagine the rating Breakfast at Tiffany’s would get? Everyone in that film smokes like a chimney! And even Marx Brothers films would get a PG or PG-13 rating because of Groucho’s cigar. It’s a strange thought. You can read more about the MPAA’s new rules here.

Christie’s to auction off more Audrey Hepburn memorabilia

1 Comment 08 May 2007

Christie’s broke records and made international headlines when Audrey Hepburn’s most famous little black dress, the iconic black column dress from the opening scenes of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, sold for an unheard of £467,200 on December 5 of last year. This year, Christie’s hopes to induce another bidding frenzy by auctioning off yet another classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress at the end of the month. The dress going up for sale on May 30 in New York is Holly’s cute little pink cocktail dress, worn in a pivotal scene in the film. Worth noting in this auction is the fact that, unlike the black dress auctioned last December, this pink dress was actually worn by Audrey in the film and possibly even afterward for publicity photos. This dress is expected to fetch between $20,000-30,000. You can read the details for yourself here on the Christie’s website (though if you somehow haven’t seen Breakfast before, please don’t read the Lot Notes at the bottom of the page because it does contain spoilers).

watch Audrey Hepburn under the stars

Comments Off on watch Audrey Hepburn under the stars 26 April 2007

If you’re in the Washington, D.C. area or will be this summer, then you might be interested in taking in an Audrey movie under the stars. This year’s Screen on the Green will feature Wait Until Dark on July 30. All movies will start at dusk, which AOL is estimating to be around 8:30 pm. It’s one thing to watch a scary movie in your own house, how creepy would it be to watch in the great, dark outdoors? Make sure to mark this one on your calendars! I’m fairly sure this is free, too.

a pint-sized Holly Golightly

Comments Off on a pint-sized Holly Golightly 20 April 2007

Photographer Amy Wenzel recently did a themed photoshoot revolving around Audrey Hepburn. She wanted to recreate the immortal Breakfast at Tiffany’s photo of Audrey as Holly Golightly enjoying her breakfast actually inside Tiffany’s (see photo at left), and made a little documentary showing how this idea became a reality. She didn’t have a specific little girl in mind when she started this, but it all came together nicely in the end, and you will be very charmed by this video:

watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s free!

Comments Off on watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s free! 17 April 2007

This is another offer that probably won’t be around forever, but last night I stumbled across a website that has scads of free movies and TV shows up for your viewing pleasure. While it only has one Audrey movie available right now, at least it’s a good one: Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s a lovely starting place for any new fan (or someone you would like to convert to an Audrey fan), or just a nice way to heal your own mean reds at any time of the day or night. Click here to see the movie, and don’t forget to watch it full sized!

watch Funny Face while you can!

Comments Off on watch Funny Face while you can! 17 April 2007

While searching You Tube last night I found that someone was in the process of uploading Funny Face in its entirety! They’ve finished by now, so if you haven’t seen this fantastic musical yet, or just haven’t seen it in a while, you should go while the getting is good. I don’t know how long these will be up, so go! Part one is below:

Edit: video has been removed from YouTube by its user.

Target.com also has a little goodie for you: an Audrey Hepburn pop art tee! It’s four different coloured silk screens of Audrey as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and I must admit it’s a pretty cute shirt (as you can see). For the unbeatable price of $9.99 it’s hard to come up with an excuse to not buy it.

video of the Tiffany diamond on display

Comments Off on video of the Tiffany diamond on display 14 April 2007

They’re calling it the Breakfast at Tiffany’s diamond, and that assumption seems to draw in even more people. NECN has video footage up of the rare yellow Tiffany diamond being installed at the Smithsonian museum in Washington, D.C., and interviews some gawkers admiring the diamond. While no one interviewed said they came because they were an Audrey Hepburn or Breakfast at Tiffany’s fan, I’m sure quite a few people did end up making the trip because of that Audrey tie-in. It’s funny to see how relatively small the diamond seems to be, yet it’s still larger than the most famous diamond in the world, the Hope Diamond (though I guess being cursed does help you become famous, as the case is with the Hope). I’ve seen the Hope diamond in person and it does look a lot larger when you’re face to face with it. Does anyone have plans to visit the Tiffany diamond?
