A little tattered BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S

Oh how something so tattered can make me happy for 50 cents.

I stopped at a neighborhood estate sale and found a few things to make me smile. Things that nobody else would give a second look. This is one of them. I saw the spine and new immediately it was an old copy. I've learned to scope out old titles by their spines, thus I don't waste time bending over looking through boxes of anything recent. Not interested.

Was in heaven when I saw the genuine Holly Golightly on the front. Never again will this book have Audrey Hepburn on the cover. So I add it to my collection of movie tie-in books.

Yes, I collect movie tie-in books too, and I give explanations in these two other posts:
TRAIN of Thought which features Steve McQueen and Paul Newman

and Sweet Smell of SUCCESS featuring Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis.
But to step back in time for just a few moments...


  1. 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' is one of my all-time favorite movies, and Audrey is one of my favorite actresses. I love all her movies. I remember watching it as a teenager and probably not getting everthing going on under the surface, but I loved it for her beauty and quirkiness, and George Peppard was so handsome. I've never actually read the book and I need to remedy that.

  2. One of my top 5 movies of all times. If you haven't read the book, but love the movie, maybe you shouldn't read it. They changed a few major things in the movie. Truman was not happy. (I'm a big Capote fan, too.)

  3. Thanks Ann, I haven't read it. I did sit down the other night and read the first few pages. I'll take your warning as advice. I haven't seen the movie in so long that I'm probably far enough removed that reading it will be safe.
