Favorite Movie Tuesday

This week's favorite movie is:

As you might have noticed, I have a lot of favorite movies. But, Breakfast at Tiffany's has to be my ALL TIME favorite. I'm sure most have seen it at least once in their life & whether you liked it or not you have to admit that it's a classic.

Not only was the cast (
Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Buddy Epson, & Mickey Rooney) fantastic but it's just a great all around movie. I can't even pick a particular part that's my favorite because I love it all (especially the clothes they wore). I've watched this movie maybe like 100 times & I still cry at the end. I made Rusty watch it with me when we first started dating & he was fighting to stay awake by the middle of it. I remember being so angry cause I thought to myself, 'who the heck could fall asleep through this great movie?', but I guess it's more of a chick movie. Still a classic though.

For years I've been meaning to read the
novel, written by Truman Capote, but have yet to do so because I keep finding new mysteries to read. I've heard that the book is better than the movie and I'm sure it is because Truman Capote was a great author. I think that will be the next book I read after Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.

If you're into brilliantly written classics & you haven't seen it, go rent it. Here's the 1961 original trailer for your enjoyment :)

Movie synopsis:
In an idealized New York City during the early '60s, Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) is a charming socialite with a youthful zest for life who lives alone in a nearly bare apartment. She has such a flippant lifestyle that she won't even give her cat a name, because that would be too much of a commitment to a relationship. Maintaining a childlike innocence yet wearing the most perfect of designer clothes and accessories from Givenchy, she spends her time on expensive dates and at high-class parties. She escorts various wealthy men, yet fails to return their affections after they have given her gifts and money. Holly's carefree independence is changed when she meets her neighbor, aspiring writer Paul (George Peppard), who is suffering from writer's block while being kept by a wealthy woman (Patricia Neal). Just when Holly and Paul are developing their sweet romance, Doc (Buddy Ebsen) appears on the scene and complicates matters, revealing the truth about Holly's past.
