Flashback Friday

Breakfast at Tiffany's 
Who loves it?
Who hates it?
Who has never seen it?
Well, you better believe this girl loves it. I have watched it a thousand times at least, and have of course introduced my girls to the movie. 
Audrey Hepburn playing the character of Holly Golightly is so eccentric.
So bizarre.
So troubled. 
So mysterious in this movie. 
Is it any wonder that it became so popular?
But, I have to say watching it as a parent knowing what I know about all the social innuendos that are made was a bit different then when I watched it as a young, naive teenager for the first time. 
Still, it will always be a favorite. Did you know that Audrey H. had just given birth to her son 3 months prior to filming the movie? How is that even humanly possible to be that thin after just having a baby. 
And did you also know that she Audrey hated Danishes, but that was the pastry you see her eating in the first scene.
My favorite scene in the whole movie is when she catches the woman at the party's hat on fire. I laugh so hard at that every time. 
I also cry every time she lets the cat go, even though I hate cats I just think it's so sad that part. 
I'm a big baby at movies so that's not a big surprise. 
My favorite Audrey H. movie is My Fair Lady. What's yours?
My mom loved that movie and even played the role of Eliza Do Little in College. 
Eliza DoLittle, and Holly GoLightly ... I wonder if there are any HUGE Audrey fans out there that named their daughters Elize and Holly after her??
Well, and my flashback blog is about my momma-zita today so with that I say get ready to FBF;

I have it, but Breakfast at Tiffany's isn't my favorite movie of hers. I grew up on Roman Holiday and My Fair Lady, but more recently I discovered How to Steal a Million and I absolutely love that one!

definitely My Fair Lady. I liked Breakfast at Tiffany's better when I was a kid.

My Fair Lady is my favorite, too - LOVE it. I was never a huge fan of Breakfast at Tiffany's, though.
