My Friend...

Love this Breakfast at Tiffany's GIF by Arlei via English Muse.

Breakfast at Tiffany's is on my top ten film list, it is perfect in every way... except for Mickey Rooney playing an embarrassing stereotype of a Japanese photographer. I like to ignore those parts of the film, the rest is perfect. 


  1. I echo your sentiments about Mickey Rooney, the film and the GIF!


  2. It is rather special - on my fav list too. It's strange how they can make a film so beautifully realised and poignant... and then slap in a piece of ill-judged humour as if nervous that audiences won't be able to handle it without some 'light relief'. That GIF is just fantastic :) Kx

  3. It's all the worse because that character in the book is dignified and restrained.

    I'm new to this blog, but I'm really enjoying it. I hope you enjoy 'The Good Soldier'--it's a wonderful book. Reading that a few years ago sent me off to read Stella Bowen's autobiography (she was his wife) and rereading Jean Rhys (she was his mistress at the same time--the three of them living together often very unhappily).

  4. Thanks for stopping by JRSM, I will have to finish reading the book one day. I read it years ago, and I seem to remember the end (which isn't like the film), but I can't remember having read the whole thing, which is strange.

    Thanks for the heads-up about Stell and Jean, sounds like the de Beauvoir book I just read and Hemingway's "East of Eden".


I heart comments...
