My Fair Lady on the big screen

Comments Off on My Fair Lady on the big screen 30 March 2009

This past Friday I was lucky enough to finally see My Fair Lady on the big screen. The Academy (you know, the ones who hand out the Oscars) was holding a special 70mm screening of the restored original print, and apparently the 70mm version hasn’t been screened since the film was first released 45 years ago. After seeing it for myself, I have to say it’s downright tragic. The colours were fantastic, especially the flower segments during the opening credits, and I could just see so much more than I ever have before.

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).
