Audrey Hepburn poster auction this weekend!

No Comments 08 November 2007

If you’re a more serious Audrey Hepburn collector with some money to burn, you might be interested in a huge vintage poster auction going on this weekend. The Fifth Annual Hollywood Poster Auction is happening November 10th and 11th in New York at the Hotel Pennsylvania. The auction features a huge collection of vintage Hollywood film posters, from early Garbo through the 60s. If you were interested in bidding but won’t be in New York at the time, you can also place an absentee bid online through their eBay profile and bid live at the time of the auction. You can view the whole collection that will be up for grabs here, or just look at the Audrey posters here.

Find out exactly where Breakfast at Tiffany’s was filmed!

No Comments 11 October 2006

I know, after just saying that everyone thinks Audrey only did one worthwhile film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, I go and talk about it some more. But this is really cool and worth it, I promise. To celebrate 40 years of filming in New York, the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting is releasing a book called Scenes from the City: Filmmaking in New York 1966-2006. In it are pictures from a lot of the great films made on location in New York, with over 250 pictures, many rare and never before seen. Breakfast at Tiffany’s will be featured in the book itself, and Google Map on the special page dedicated to the book shows you three filming locations for B@T. I tried looking up Wait Until Dark to see if their few exterior scenes would show up, but no such luck. They’re mainly trying to stick to the iconic New York films, which is why so many Woody Allen films show up (I personally love Annie Hall and Hannah and Her Sisters), but it’s still very exciting to see exactly where in Central Park they filmed, the exact location of Tiffany & Co., and the exact location of her apartment (exterior only, of course). To have some fun with the map and learn a little more about the book, click here, and the book comes out October 17th, if you’re interested.
