Lincoln Theater 4 is starting a
full-week, limited-engagement screening of the 1961 classic
"Breakfast at Tiffany's," winner of two Academy Awards.
"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is a romantic comedy starring Audrey
Hepburn and George Peppard and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen,
Martin Balsam and Mickey Rooney. The film, loosely based on the
novella of the same name by Truman Capote, was directed by Blake
Edwards and released by Paramount Pictures.

Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric café society girl is

Hepburn's performance of "Moon River" helped composer Henry
Mancini and lyricist Johnny Mercer win an Oscar for Best Song.
Hepburn as Holly, carrying an oversized cigarette holder, is
considered one of the most iconic images of 20th-century American
One of three dresses designed by Givenchy for Hepburn for
possible use in the film sold at auction by Christie's on Dec. 5,
2006, for $947,000. The little black Givenchy dress worn by Hepburn
in the beginning of the film is cited as one of the most iconic
items of clothing from the 20th century and perhaps the most famous
little black dress of all time.
