Classic Film Friday Trifecta

Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Audrey Hepburn is intoxicating and completely believable as a hip, socialite Holly Golightly in New York. Paul, a writer and “kept” man belonging to an older, very rich woman finds himself spending more and more time with Holly realizing after just a little time that she herself is for “sale”. Throughout the movie, I found myself not liking the two main characters on and off. They both seem so caught up in what they can get from someone else. Along comes the scene when the two spend the day together taking turns doing things they’ve never done before, and then begins the magic.

Auntie Mame which is a story of a woman who inherits a boy because her brother died in pre-great depression America and the fall out of happened there after. She goes from happy and rich to broke and back again.

Arsenic and Old Lace: A hapless writer falls in love with the woman of his dreams, the only problem is his spinster aunts kill people and he needs to straighten it all out before he go and live the happy life. Add a crazy uncle, and a brutal brother who has a dead body to the mix, and you have quite the comedy on your hands.
