Breakfast at Tiffany's 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review



Fully Restored and Remastered, Iconic Film Debuts on Blu-ray September 20, 2011 Including Over 90 Minutes of Bonus Features on the Making of the Movie,
Audrey Hepburn’s Timeless Style, the Music of Henry Mancini and Much More

The exquisite Audrey Hepburn stars as the free-spirited
Holly Golightly in the unforgettable masterpiece BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and debuting on Blu-ray September 20, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment.  Based on Truman Capote’s best-selling novella, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S captured the imagination of audiences everywhere and made an indelible impact on movies, fashion and society at large.  In director Blake Edwards’ timeless classic, Hepburn’s intoxicating New York party girl embarks on a wildly entertaining, comedic adventure to find love in the big city. 
George Peppard is the struggling and "sponsored" young writer who finds himself swept into Holly's dizzying, delightfully unstructured lifestyle as she determinedly scours Manhattan for a suitable millionaire to marry.  The film also stars Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam and
Mickey Rooney and earned Oscars® for Best Song (“Moon River”) and Best Score.

Our Review:
I have seen this movie on TV many times while growing up. But it was really nice to watch it on Blu-ray. The picture quality was definitely better after the film has been restored.When I think of Breaskfast at Tiffany's, I think about the pearl necklaces and the little black dress that Audry Hepburn worn in the movie. I am sure many of you already seen the movie. If you haven't, here's a quick summary. In this classic film, Holly (played by Audry Hepburn) goes to NYC in search of a wealthy man to marry. She meets a young but broke writer Paul(played by George Peppard). The film is pretty much about their relationships and the pursuit of happiness and love. If you like this film and want to own it, I recommend picking up the Blu-ray version, the picture quality is worth the purchasing price.
