get in the Halloween spirit with Audrey Hepburn

No Comments 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!

Kay Thompson steals the show

No Comments 16 October 2007

At the beginning of this year I saw an Audrey Hepburn double feature that included Funny Face, the first time I’d ever seen that film on the big screen. I was surprised to see that a good portion of the audience, maybe even half, was there because they were huge Kay Thompson fans. Sadly, little information seems to be readily available on her, but I did find someone who is willing to share Kay with the world. At People vs. Dr. Chilledair, the author shares some insider information that he has on her, including the fact that Kay’s goddaughter Liza Minelli is currently recording a tribute album to her. It will be called “The Godmother + The Goddaughter,” though no release date has yet been set. Kay herself only has two albums available (that I could find, anyway), “The Golden Years 1934-1954,” and Queen of Swing Vocals and Her Rhythm Singers 1933-37. It’s a shame that more isn’t available, because she was a prolific and highly talented woman. The author of Dr. Chilledair has also posted a great video on YouTube with some of Kay’s earlier film performances, including one song and dance routine done just five years before Funny Face:

Maybe this new wave of attention to Kay will inspire someone to write a great biography on her, or release more of her music.

“Gossip Girl” shout-out to Breakfast at Tiffany’s

No Comments 11 October 2007

There’s a new show on the CW (in America) called “Gossip Girl.” It’s just started, but last night on episode 4, the show opened with an homage to the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I’ve put a clip I found below, but until I figure out how to cue up YouTube videos to just play the bits I want, I’m afraid you’ll have to skip to the 1:32 mark and play until 2:23 to see the whole thing. Watching beyond that is optional:

Edit: The video has been taken down, but I do have screengrabs for you. Maybe someday the clip will be put up and can stay up, but in the meantime, these will have to do. Just imagine “Moon River” playing in your head and you’ve got it.

yet another Japanese tea commercial featuring Audrey Hepburn

No Comments 03 October 2007

I’ve already posted three Japanese tea commercials that feature a digitally added Audrey Hepburn encouraging a young woman to be her beautiful self (and drink some tea while she’s at it). Maybe it’s the foreign novelty of it, but these commercials seem to offend a lot less people than the polarizing Gap commercial did. Anyway, these commercials always take scenes from Roman Holiday and subtly warp Audrey so that she’s holding a bottle of tea. Sometimes she’s colourized to fit in with the modern women, and sometimes she’s left in her original black and white. This latest commercial falls into the latter category, and in this one she speaks! Unfortunately I’m not able to embed the video for this one, so you’ll have to click here and watch for yourself via YouTube.

how to make Audrey Hepburn cry

No Comments 26 September 2007

There’s a new Audrey Hepburn clip on You Tube, and in it Audrey tells the fantastic story of how she was made to cry at the end of Roman Holiday. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this story, I won’t ruin it for you, instead letting Audrey herself tell it to you:

This is part of a “best of” montage episode from Terry Wogan’s talk show, and Audrey is only featured for the first three minutes. But what a great three minutes!

How to look like Holly Golightly; Audrey interview from 1990

No Comments 28 August 2007

A few days ago I got a message from askmemakeup on You Tube, telling me about a new makeup video she’s done instructing women on how to get the Holly Golightly look in makeup. I watched it last night, and wow! It’s really good. I’ve always had a difficult time with false eyelashes (maybe due to my real eyelashes — they’ve been likened to giraffe eyelashes), but after watching this video I really want to try it again, and I have a good feeling I’d finally get it right. Watch for yourself, then try for yourself!

rare insight into Audrey Hepburn

No Comments 14 July 2007

There’s a new video on You Tube from a made-for-TV biography that I don’t think I’ve ever seen. The clip that was uploaded was from a Chinese airing, but maybe it’s been aired in English-speaking countries? Either way, it’s fantastic interviews with Mel Ferrer, Henry Mancini (composer of “Moon River”), Stanley Donen (director of Funny Face and Two For the Road), and Hubert de Givenchy. It’s a really fascinating segment to watch and gives more insight into Audrey’s career and relationships with these men, you really just have to see it to appreciate it. I certainly can’t do it justice!
