“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is by far the most popular Audrey Hepburn movie. The story of a Holly Golightly, a New York coffee society girl, became a great hit. Throughout decades it inspired artists, fashion designers and women all over the world, especially when it comes to style and the immortal little black dress designed for Audrey by Hubert de Givenchy.
“Moon River” song performed on the fire exit by Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) makes one of the most memorable moments in the whole movie. Lyrics and melody are very simple, yet emotional and truly nostalgic. This song reveals the romantic and sensitive nature, hidden deeply by the headstrong, independent and somewhat disillusioned Holly.
Audrey loved the song and were outraged after she found out that the “Moon River” song scene was supposed to be deleted from the final version of the movie. She was very clear and declared that it will happen only “over her dead body”. Director capitulated and agreed to the requirement made by Audrey Hepburn – the song was saved and therefore included in the movie.
