and I found it heartbreaking :(! Is this normal? Or is this just me?
but rather bowdlerises the book. And it's dated somewhat, especially Mickey Rooney's 'so offensive it's not even funny' character.
were you pissed?
There was just something so tragic about Holly...
I liked the cat though.
She's not rich, or a spoilt brat! She's an orphan who lives off money men give her for spending time with them.
It's not terrible but far from good enough to spawn a poster that graces most student's bedroom.
Not Hepburn's best by a long stretch. That accolade goes to Charade.
You can't take your eyes off her when she's on screen. Whether that's got anything to do with Peppard's crap acting or her beauty is debateable, but her appeal as an icon in the movie is a good enough reason for her to grace everyone's walls. I mean, you don't put a poster up of a film that has a really good story, do you? You put one up of a film that's cool and of a picture that's cool.
But then that's mainly for Gregory Peck <3
Also Audrey's hot but they ruin her character by making her a dick. She should just ponce around with no clothes on and a cat for an hour and a half instead.
I may have to agree with you for that bit
and a cup of tea with about 5 sugars in.
Ie. enjoyable and entertaining but not as good as I'd like it to be.
I read the book first and found it brill. I was looking forward the horse scene and to Joe Bell. Neither of them were in it, but they managed to make enough time to change the narrator into an overbearing knob head and invent some horrid old woman for him to have an affair with.
The comedy in the book was better than the comedy in the film, which was mainly things like 'haha look at how stupid mr yunioshi is'.
I'm slagging it off here, but I'm wrong. She's lovely and has ultimate screen presence, the music is good and Peppard is dressed wonderfully.
I want to read the book too. I like Holly Golightly and her shambolic life and the cat and the way it ends.
