Wait Until Dark Soundtrack

Comments Off on Wait Until Dark Soundtrack 30 October 2007

Since it’s practically Halloween already, I’m going to talk about a great scary movie, Wait Until Dark. It was Audrey Hepburn’s last film before retiring for ten years to focus on her children and family, and the last film for which she earned an Oscar nomination. It’s also the last film of hers that was scored by the fantastic Henry Mancini, who wrote “Moon River” for dear Audrey. This soundtrack was a huge departure for Mancini, who usually does what would now be considered as lounge or soft pop music. Unfortunately, the soundtrack was never officially released, so it’s impossible to find. It was never on vinyl, sadly, and was never on CD … until now! After searching high and low for this, there seems to be only one place that offers the Wait Until Dark soundtrack.

get in the Halloween spirit with Audrey Hepburn

Comments Off on get in the Halloween spirit with Audrey Hepburn 18 October 2007

It’s getting closer to Halloween, and maybe you already have your chic Audrey Hepburn (or Holly Golightly) costume assembled and ready to go. But how about getting a little more into the Halloween spirit by watching Wait Until Dark, a claustrophobic thriller with Audrey? It’s scary, it’s intense, and it’s Audrey in her last Oscar-nominated role. Last year Alan Arkin’s sinister Harry Roat was voted one of the Top Ten villains on film, so you might want watch this one with a friend. And with a light on. Anyway, you can rent it or watch it straight from YouTube in its entirety, thanks to the same great person who put up Breakfast at Tiffany’s:

You can view the other segments here, and don’t forget to say thank you!

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.

Audrey Hepburn at the Oscars

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn at the Oscars 27 February 2007

If you didn’t end up watching the Oscars last night, Audrey Hepburn herself was featured! During a segment on writers in cinema, a clip from Paris When It Sizzles was shown. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the film, Audrey plays a typist named Gabrielle Simpson who is hired to type a non-existent script for slacker screenwriter Richard Benson, played by William Holden. There was also an Audrey-inspired commercial that aired during the ceremonies.

We’re baaaaack . . . with news

Comments Off on We’re baaaaack . . . with news 22 November 2006

Terribly sorry for the lack of updates recently. Due to the holidays, work has been insane (to put it one way), and it was all I could do to eat and sleep in between. I’ll build up my stamina, promise. :) Anyway, there hasn’t been much real Audrey news lately, so you haven’t missed anything. She’s still mentioned many times per day in news articles, but it’s usually “she looked very Audrey Hepburn-ish” or “I felt like Audrey Hepburn,” things usually totally unrelated and not worth posting.

audreyhepburn.com finally updates!

Comments Off on audreyhepburn.com finally updates! 29 October 2006

So I just got an email from the Children’s Fund (don’t get huffy, I’m on the mailing list just like a million other people are), and they’re finally offering The Audrey Hepburn Treasures for sale on their website like they did when Sean’s Elegant Spirit came out. But unlike Elegant, Treasures is not signed, so please make note of that. It’s also selling at full price ($49.95 US), so I personally think you’re better off at Amazon. And don’t worry about hurting the Children’s Fund, since they published the book anyway and will get the writer’s cut.
