The film version of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” opened 50 years ago today, October 5, 1961.
I’ve always loved this movie….
I had to go to Tiffany’s on my first trip to New York just to pay homage to this film and it’s star Audrey Hepburn. I even had to have my picture take where she stood.
I’m much more blase’ and world-weary now, but I always think of this film whenever I’m on Fifth Avenue and go by Tiffany’s. It was one of the films that formed my childhood image of New York.
I’m still looking for the New York of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
And I always will be….
And the original trailer:
