Breakfast At Tiffany's - Paramount Centennial Collection

I desperately want to be a New York elite.  There’s not much hiding it.  I watch Gossip Girl and am completely transfixed by the lifestyles I see.  I want to be Chuck Bass.  I’d even settle for being Dan Humphrey, because then I would get to be with Serena Van Der Woodsen.  I read The New Yorker and The New York Times and pine for what I see there.  I wouldn’t ever move there, because I’m not one of those Middle America strivers that attach their dreams to cities away from the cornfields.  I’m just a little bit jealous.  Now there’s a classic movie about the same sort of thing and it’s ready for a whole new audience.

Starting this January 13th, now available as a two disc collector’s set from Paramount Studios Home Entertainment comes one of the most fantastic films from 1961.  Breakfast At Tiffany’s – Centennial Collection is ready to come into your living room with style and class like you wouldn’t believe.  Bring home this slightly less than modern classic today!

Based off of the bestselling novel by Truman Capote, this film is the story of Holly Golightly, a New York socialite who has maintained her well-off lifestyle by dating wealthy men.  She spends much time with a struggling writer and new neighbor, Paul Varjak.  They become friends and then Holly’s romantic past comes back to haunt her and her future absolutely falls apart.  This film stars Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam and Mickey Rooney.

The special features included in this two disc collector’s set are an optional audio commentary from producer Richard Shepherd, a featurette about what a party with Ms. Golightly would be like, a deeper look into the works of Henry Mancini, a look at Mr. Yunioshi, a making-of featurette, a look at how Audrey Hepburn influenced style, a tour of Paramount Studios at the time this movie was made, a look at Tiffany’s, a letter Audrey Hepburn wrote to Tiffany’s, the original theatrical trailer and photo galleries.

It’s easy to see why this film is regarded as being a classic.  The sets are delightful, “Moon River” is a beautiful song and the actors and acting are breathtaking.  This is my favorite Audrey Hepburn movie, hands down.  The story does become a little convoluted at times and it can be hard to connect with someone who keeps a living by going around with rich men, but it’s still a fantastic movie.  The extra bonus features do much to improve the scope and historical place of this film and made it a much more enjoyable experience.  Bring home this great movie today!

Start your day off right with a great and classic Breakfast!

This two disc boxed set is available at Amazon.com.
