Three things about Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
1. The image of Audrey Hepburn in the black dress, pearl necklace and carrying an extended cigarette holder is literally one of the most recognizable and iconic images in cinema history.
2. The song “Moon River”, sung by Audrey Hepburn in the film and covered by dozens and dozens of musicians in the following years, deserves its high status in pop music history. Brief, elegant and harmonious – written by the great Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer – it’s a song for the ages.
3. Finally, the song is by far more famous than the film, for good reason. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is horrible. Nearly unwatchable in fact. It’s remembered fondly, but try viewing it again. Actually don’t. Just enjoy the music.
