Audrey Hepburn double feature!

No Comments 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.

a new Audrey Hepburn auction!

No Comments 24 December 2006

While not nearly as exciting as the recent Christie’s auction of Audrey’s classic Little Black Dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, there will be a new auction of Audrey memorabilia coming at the end of January 2007. This auction is of Audrey’s contract to appear in Two For the Road, and is part of a large batch of celebrity contracts and memos to benefit the Motion Picture and Television Fund, an insurance fund for artists. While the website for the auction house, Swann Auction Galleries, has some scans of other documents, there doesn’t seem to be any available of Audrey’s contract. I did, however, sign up for a PIN number, so if I see anything, you will. 🙂 You can learn more about the auction and some other articles up for sale here.

The episode of “CSI: New York” with the larcenous trio of Holly Golightlys is airing again tonight! Catch it on your local CBS affiliate. (I was going to post a clip from that episode here as a teaser, but it’s been taken down.)

slow going in Audrey Hepburnland

I apologize for the lack of updates here lately, but there really is no news to report. Whatever does come in has already been covered here, and I’ve pulled out pretty much all of the older things I could rehash. So sorry again that we haven’t had much, but I’d rather be silent than give in to the junk that’s out there.

Audrey at a theatre near you; Edie Sedgwick and stencils

First up, a few theatres in America have been publishing their upcoming attractions on line and making it into Google news, so you might be able to catch Audrey on the silver screen soon!

San Diego’s recently renovated North Park Theatre will be running a film festival called “Fabulous Faces of the Fifties.” Audrey is, of course, one of those fabulous faces, and if you’re in the area, Roman Holiday will be playing January 11-14. For more information, go here.

‘Tis the season to give!

No Comments 14 December 2006

I was going to save this for the New Year’s post, but since news is slow, we’re going to talk about charities. I know this is a hard time of year to think about handing over even more money than you probably already have, and some of us just don’t have money to throw around to begin with. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t do your bit for charity! Giving isn’t limited to money, as Audrey herself has shown. Here’s some alternative ways to do a good deed without sending yourself to the poorhouse:

Larceny at Tiffany’s

No Comments 05 October 2006

I can’t believe I forgot to post the screengrabs from last week’s “CSI:New York”. It’s been a busy week, I guess. Well, now that everyone’s forgotten about it, here they are:

It looks like they went to the Jennifer Love Hewitt School of Dressing Like Audrey: short skirts, low necklines, and bad wigs [edit: don’t forget the square sunglasses!]. Still, please don’t be a jerk and steal these pictures to post elsewhere. If you want to share this post with someone, there’s a link directly below that will link directly to this entry. I don’t want to have to watermark all of my original pictures if I don’t have to. Thank you!

Edit: Sorry, I seem to have lost these. If you really want, I can screengrab the episode again. Otherwise, eh.
