New York City’s 100 Most Romantic Movies

Comments Off on New York City’s 100 Most Romantic Movies 13 February 2007

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the New York Daily News has released their list of the top 100 romantic films that not only take place in New York, but also capture the feel of the city itself. While you can read the whole list here, I’ll save you some scrolling and tell you where Audrey’s films stand. Sabrina comes in at #15, with Breakfast at Tiffany’s following at #16, and Funny Face comes in at #54. I was surprised that Funny Face made the list, since most of it takes place in and around Paris, but I guess the people at Daily News felt it captured enough New York essence to make it worthwhile. Either way, I say they’re all definitely worth watching!

Audrey Hepburn film screenings near you; give Audrey a makeover

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn film screenings near you; give Audrey a makeover 12 January 2007

There’s a few new Audrey film screenings coming up that you might want to know about! First up is the British Film Festival, taking place in Tel Aviv. I know it’s a bit of a commute, but the film festival runs from January 18-27. The Ambassador’s Choice film for this year is none other than Two For the Road. I’m extremely jealous, because Two For the Road just might be my favourite Audrey film ever, and it’s not exactly one you see screened very often. Tom Phillips, the British ambassador to Israel, says he chose the film because of Audrey, firstly, and because it’s just such a fantastic relationship film overall. To learn more about the film festival, go here.

Style and Substance, une nouvelle biographie, and more Funny Face

Comments Off on Style and Substance, une nouvelle biographie, and more Funny Face 06 January 2007

First off, another big thank you to Franklin, who has made us aware of a new French biography on Audrey. Audrey Hepburn, by Christian Dureau, was released November 9 2006, and while there doesn’t seem to be very much information on it (at least on the French Amazon), it is 109 pages and available for €14,16. Judging from the author’s other works, it seems like this biography is pretty barebones (the page count seems to say so, too) and wouldn’t say anything new to the reader. There are also no reviews up anywhere that I can find, so it’s hard to say for sure whether it’s worth it. If my French were a little less rusty, I’d give it a go!

Audrey Hepburn double feature!

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn double feature! 03 January 2007

At the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. I was there, because honestly, how can you resist seeing Audrey on the big screen twice in one day? It’s the way she was meant to be seen, really. And I must say, it really does make a difference. I watch most of my DVDs on the computer, mainly because I’ve cut TV out of my life, and it’s easy to forget that movies were filmed to be seen on a grand scale. You always hear about Audrey’s height and slender frame being her trademarks, but it’s easy to forget when she’s only 7 inches tall and every other actress (in and out of Hollywood) strives to be her. But seeing the one and only Audrey Hepburn larger than life in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s caught my breath and made me realize what magic she must have been when her films were new. I had even seen Breakfast earlier last year in a smaller theatre, but to see it in a grand old movie house from the 20s on a real screen makes all the difference. If you ever have the chance to see a film of hers on the big screen, take it! It’s a completely new experience.

So I wasn’t able to find an Audrey calendar the other day. And on Amazon all calendars “ship in 4-6 weeks.” By then January will be over! But while I couldn’t find any Audrey calendars, I did stumble across some other excellent calendars you might be interested in.

Merry Christmas!


And for a little Audrey-related holiday goodness, you can watch “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” here! It’s narrarated by her Funny Face co-star Fred Astaire and features Breakfast at Tiffany’s co-star Mickey Rooney as well.

Chick flicks, lookalikes, and the LBD

Comments Off on Chick flicks, lookalikes, and the LBD 01 December 2006

Thank you all for your patience. I appreciate it!

First up, the lovely Lotta has sent us a great find. It seems that in Finland in 1955 there was an Audrey Hepburn lookalike contest, and the grand prize was a trip to Stockholm! If you can read Finnish, then there’s a short article here, and you can see a small picture of the winner. There is also a link to a short video about the contest on that page, or you can just click here. It seems that even then, everyone wanted to look like Audrey.

The history of "Moon River"; also, what are you doing New Year’s Day?

Comments Off on The history of "Moon River"; also, what are you doing New Year’s Day? 09 November 2006

Though a lot of the more seasoned Audrey fans may already know this story, it’s still nice to read about the history of “Moon River,” and how Audrey singlehandedly saved it from the scrap heap. This is an article giving the background of iconic songs in film (“Moon River” is about halfway down), and while it does give good information, it’s wrong about Paul’s mask being Huckleberry Hound!

Comments Off on more "Funny Face" 04 November 2006

I’m sorry I didn’t get around to posting last night, but I was hard at work. I’ve found a new way to get higher quality screengrabs, and while the process takes about three times as long, the pictures themselves are about a thousand times better and so worth it. Which means I’ll eventually have to go back and re-grab Charade and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but not just yet. Here’s the link to the new gallery, and here’s a sneak preview:
