They Don’t Serve Breakfast at Tiffany’s?

Right up there with the movie When Harry Met Sally is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I remember the first time I came to know Holly Golightly. I was in awe of her! (Actually I love all things Audrey Hepburn!!!) She seemed to be this totally together socialite, carefree who threw fabulous parties. Of course, I later found out she was just some of us or just me-confused about the course in life being taken, caught up in masking true feelings without a sense of belonging. I think the weirdest part of the whole movie was not that Holly was passing secrets for an inmate in Sing Sing but that she was married to Doc Golightly played by actor/dancer Buddy Ebsen from Barnaby Jones and Beverly Hillbilliesfame. What’s a girl to do?

I can’t wait to go inside!

I would like to say I read the book from which the movie was derived but my only experience with the story is with the DVD. Fred, played by George Peppard was messing around with the older married lady, Mrs. Emily Eustance Failenson aka 2E played by Patricia Neal but I so hoped he would end up with Holly Golightly! His character’s name was actually Paul Varjak but in true Holly Golightly style, she gave him a name she thought was more fitting. Rooming with Holly was ‘Cat’. A beautiful feline she found but didn’t want to be fuss with giving it an appropriate name.

After discussing the movie with a few friends who actually read the Truman Capote book, all I could say was that the movie was written in true Hollywood style. There shouldn’t have been any kiss at the end of the movie as Fred was supposed to be gay. I only wish the book could have been more accurately portrayed in the movie. Truman Capote was not keen with the way the movie ended either. I was surprised to learn that Capote originally selected his friend, Marilyn Monroe to play Holly but Paramount Pictures called the shots so Audrey was in. I’m going to put the book on my summer reading list as soon as I get through the Shades trilogy, Andy Cohen and Joan Rivers. Not until then can I can provide further criticism as I’m sure I will find more!

The jewelry store on Fifth Avenue brings another movie, Sweet Home Alabama to mind. I so thought my first visit to Tiffany & Company would be tremendous just like Reese Witherspoon’s character in the movie! When Melanie was swept off her feet by Andrew (Patrick Dempsey) it was simply mouthwatering! I imagined freshly shined finishes that sparkled in the light. I thought for sure I would enter Ms. Wilson and exit a Mrs. To Be.

Will all my dreams come true once I step inside?

Well things didn’t twinkle or shine and I exited with the same foreseeable last name as I had entered. I’m still with my beau who I love tremendously and I’ve come to realize that not all that glitters is gold, platinum or sterling silver for that matter!
