  1. Loved, loved, loved Audrey in that movie. I always bawl like a baby when she's reunited with "Cat."

  2. I got to read that post in my browser and it was a fine one. What IS Winnie thinking when she ponders you?
    And I love that song. It's a good one for sure.

  5. Since in My Fair Lady Audrey Hepburn's singing was dubbed by Marni Nixon, I doubt that she did her own singing in Breakfast At Tiffany's.

    1. I hate to disavow you of this, but according to the IMDb website the song "Moon River" was written especially for Audrey Hepburn, since she had no training as a singer. The vocals were written to be sung in only one octave. She also sings in a slightly breathy manner, much like Marilyn Monroe did. And she's not always on key.

    3. Thank you! In "My Fair Lady" Audrey's singing definitely didn't sound like Audrey. The only times she did was in songs where she did some "talk-singing" like parts of "Just You Wait, 'enry 'iggins."

    4. They didn't want her to sing it, but she insisted, apparently.

    6. That’s a very sweet and tender film clip. I never knew where the song came from and I've never seen the film; now I definitely want to. Thank John for being bedrock of wonderfully eccentric normality. With everything that is happening in the country and the world at the moment I guess we are living in "interesting times". Makes it even more refreshing to chill out here for a while.

    7. Riona...the film is indeed sweet and sanitized from the novella ......Audrey makes it a classic
      Enjoy the movie

  11. Perhaps you just imagined you had created a new blogpost. This kind of thing can happen to men in their mid-fifties.

  14. Lovely, one of my all-time favourites from the days of gentle songs, in gentle movies. And elegant clothes.
    Thank you, John.

  15. Oh I did, thank you. I remember swaying along to this song played by Acker Bilk at a friend's wedding about 30 years ago and of course I love the film. I read your disappearing post and thought what a good man you are, as Winnie undoubtedly does too.

  16. Great choice of song. My mum loved this song and we played it at her funeral

  17. Have mixed feelings about that movie because it is a bit different from Truman Capote's excellent novella. But I love Audrey in it--I love her in everything she did whether the movie was good or not--and "Moon River" may be one of the most hummable songs ever written

    I love "your" song . . .
