Name That Movie, Name That Book: Feline and Sleeping Beauty

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: Unforgettable theme song

Name the movie and the real names of the players featured above!

Leave a comment telling me if you've read the short story and/or seen the film - and, if you've done both, tell me which you preferred.

Many points to author Jenny Han (Shug, the Summer trilogy) for blogging this photo. (Just when you thought you couldn't get any more points in my book, Jenny!)

Oh, how I wish I had had the opportunity to work with both of these actors. Seriously.

This is Breakfast at Tiffanys with Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly and Orangey as Cat (poor slob without a name). I've both read the book and seen the movie. While I typically don't like it when movies make too many changes from the book they're based on, I was so charmed by the film and Audrey that I forgive it. The short story is so much grittier, which I like in its own way. I suppose if I had to pick one I'd say I prefer the film because I've seen it way more times than I've read the story. I'll just forget every scene with Mickey Rooney!

I agree: the short story is gritty while the movie is charming, and the Holly in print is extremely different from the Holly on screen. I also agree that the Rooney scenes in the film are unnecessary. Completely.

Audrey Hepburn in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S. She's Holly Golightly and that's the infamous cat that they had to retake that famous ending more than a few times. **I read the bio on the making of the book.

I did a lot of research on Audrey while writing my YA fantasy NO GODDESSES ALLOWED. My character Jordan Lake is totally obsessed with AH to the point that she even does the whole, "What Would Audrey Do" moments. So I immensed myself in everything AH.
