Thompson on Hollywood


Fresh from its world-premiere showing at the TCM Classic Film Fest, the 50th anniversary new digital restoration of romantic comedy-drama Breakfast at Tiffany's will screen on Friday, July 29 at 7:30 pm at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The Blake Edwards film adaptation of Truman Capote's novel has been a favorite ever since Audrey Hepburn first appeared as Holly Golightly. The movie may be dated (see Mickey Rooney), but Hepburn's Golightly isn't. "People don't belong to people," she tells smitten George Peppard.

The 1961 film nabbed Best Actress and Adapted Screenplay Oscar nominations plus wins for Best Song ("Moon River") and Henry Mancini's score.

Here's more on the screening, which is open to the public. See 1961 trailer below.
