A classic: Breakfast at Tiffanys

The other night the boo and i watched
Breakfast at Tiffanys
we were both so excited because it is deemed a classic
it resulted with the boo falling asleep 
and i was perplexed
(the fashion is what kept me awake)
i appreciate older films
i just did not understand why this was so great
so i set out to do some research googling
and i feel so ashamed that i didn't know it was a book 
and this truly is one of those movies 
where the movie leaves out some major themes of the book

There are themes of 
-stability and freedom
-nature vs culture
- diversity of love
- and apparently massive amounts of symbolism

so now Breakfast at Tiffanys is on the book list

I am really interested in watching more classic movies
plus the boo and i are having a shut in weekend 
filled with movies and ordering pizza

Movie Suggestions?

  1. Funny, I just ordered the book 1001 Movies to See Before You Die. I feel like there are a lot of great old ones I haven't seen either.

    Older movies I love: Casablanca and Gone With the Wind. And for something less commercial, The Collector (the 1965 version). So creepy.

  3. I agree with PP&P on Casablanca and GWTW, but It Happened One Night is also REALLY good, also starring Clark Gable. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is SOO amazing, as is Some Like It Hot - both with Marilyn Monroe and once you see her you realize why she is so popular! I also like really bizarre old movies based on books, too: Rebecca is very true to the book, as is Madame Bovary (1949). I'd love to hear what you think of these!
