Standing outside the shop looking into the windows, she nibbles on pastry and drinks coffee she brought with her, then strolls home to go to bed.
Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Mickey Rooney Audrey Hepburn has the distinction of being one of the most instantly recognizable film actresses in the history of the medium.
Though her acting career did not have the longevity of her contemporaries, Audrey Hepburn made incredible contributions to the world in other ways. Director Blake Edwards, the mind behind The Pink Panther series starring comedic genius Peter Sellers, created what would prove to be arguably his biggest mainstream hit with the Audrey Hepburn vehicle.
Yunioshi by Mickey Rooney has faced a great deal of criticisms.
The character and its portrayal are regarded as perhaps the biggest detractors of an otherwise timeless modern classic. She is later awoken by her new neighbour, Paul Varjak George Peppardwho uses her apartment to use the telephone. The two neighbors become acquainted as Holly readies for her weekly trip to Sing Sing prison, where she regularly visits accused mobster Sally Tomato Alan Reed.
The two become closer, and Holly inspires Paul, an out of work writer, to begin working on his passion again. Soon enough, Holly finds out that Rusty has married somebody else instead, and Paul takes her out for a day of things that neither has ever done before. Will the eccentric and elegant Manhattan socialite go with her heart and settle down with the man of her dreams, or will she go with her instincts and run away to something less complicated?
The simple country girl turned elegant socialite is an age-old tale told time and time again, but Hepburn really brings both aspects of the character to life in her best moments. Starring beside her is George Peppard as Paul Varjak, who despite not being great in the role, is perfect as a mostly silent and charming witness to the eccentricities and zaniness that comes from Holly Golightly.
Also behind the camera is director Blake Edwards, whose success with this film would lead him to excellent and highly influential projects like The Pink Panther series, The Party, and Days of Wine and Roses.
It all just feels so right. Audrey Hepburn is absolutely delightful as Holly Golightly, despite my not always agreeing with her choices or actually liking her as a character.
