Happy 50th, Breakfast at Tiffany's


Holly Golightly never needed a reason to throw a party, but there wouldn't be a better reason than the 50th anniversary of the release of the film, "Breakfast at Tiffany's."


A new companion guide to the film has been released and features insider tid bits about the making of the film. For instance, did you know that Truman Capote wanted to cast Marilyn Monroe as Holly? Can you imagine??

Audrey Hepburn will always be associated with the iconic image of the woman standing in front of Tiffany's windows, dressed head-to-toe in Givenchy and enjoying a pastry. The stuff of legends.

TGIF, friends. We made it through another week! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Will talk to you on Monday!

The party scene at her apartment is one of American film's best.
