Kiki’s Film Studies: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I had the pleasure of watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” early this morning. I had tried to watch it in the past with limited success as it is a very mature film and requires careful study and it appears my head was not in that place when I first sat with it. I enjoyed it thoroughly except they really abused the cat and I felt bad for Buddy Ebsen as Doctor Golightly who gets dumped by Holly and he recovers about as quickly as he did from the pulmonary disease he acquired from the Tin Man make up in the Wizard of Oz.

The film is a sophisticated tome reminiscent of “The Own and The Pussycat” and “The Graduate”. I don’t think anyone could have done a better job playing Holly than Audrey Hepburn except for maybe Shirley Jones, IMHO.

George Peppard and the rest of the cast were terrific and I loved seeing Patricia Neal in the film who played a pretty hot cougar. I think the only actress who might have filled her shoes in film is Myrna Loy.

Anyway the film continues to be timely despite being made about 60 years ago.
