Teddy's Movie Weekend

April 26, 2010
This weekend Teddy was struck down with a nasty cold so she stayed indoors and watched about a dozen movies, her favorite being the 1961 classic Breakfast At Tiffany's - Paramount Centennial Collection (Mastered in High Definition).

Teddy loved Audrey Hepburn's charming Holly Golightly because they have so much in common. For instance, they both wear eye pillows to bed and they both sleep in past noon.

But unlike Holly, Teddy doesn't have man trouble. You see, Holly wants to find a rich husband. That's why she dates this dashing Brazilian named Jose. But Teddy already has a rich husband: Nibs!

In the end Holly settles for Paul Varjak, her neighbor who writes magazine articles and books. She also keeps her cat. Nice ending, but Teddy always wonders: Can Holly settle for the simple life? Or will she go back to hanging out with dangerous men like Sally Tomato?

Teddy wishes there could be a sequel, but the writer who came up with the original story, Truman Capote, is long gone. Too bad.

  1. by the way, the cat that played "Cat" in the movie had a real name: Orangey. That scene where Holly throws "Cat" out of the taxi and into the rain is almost too hard to watch!
