Audrey Hepburn Collection!

Hello, hello!!

I finished the month of September cleaning up and organizing all my DVDs, including my beloved little collection of Audrey Hepburn movies! Then, once I’m also in my vacations of college, I was wondering in making an Audrey Marathon, watching all these movies that I have here by a chronological order… What do you think about it? 😀

Below, there is a cute picture of the collection that I took earlier and a list of the original titles of the movies, once most of mine are in Portuguese! Hope you like! ❤

Photo of the Day – Monroe and Russell

Hey! Let’s start the week with this picture of Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell stamping their hands on TCL Chinese Theatre in June of 1953, after the success of the movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (1953), where both starred together as Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw, respectively.

New Books

Hello! How are you all?

After exactly a month, I took a time in the studies to back here to share with you the last books I bought. So let’s see them!

The first one has arrived in my house last month, after just two weeks of waiting. The book is about the main directors of American cinema in the 50’s, their memorable movies and the stars who starred them. Its author is Olivier-René Veillon and the original title of the book is “Le Cinema Americain – Les années cinquante” (French version, 1984), which in free translation for English can be “The American Cinema – The fifties”. But I bought the Brazilian edition, dated from 1993 and because of this the names are in Portuguese in the photos below. Give a look!

P.S.: I forgot to comment the beautiful cover with a Marlon Brando photo! ❤

In addition, there is the second book I bought which I was waiting for TWO LONG MONTHS until it has arrived in my home, what happened yesterday! But I’ll write a separate post for this book, cause how you’ll verify later, there’s much love involved… I will just anticipate that is about the adorable Audrey Hepburn.

See you in a little while!

A Good Day for a Good Movie

Hello!

Yesterday was a movie day and the film chosen was “Love in the Afternoon” (1957), starred by Audrey Hepburn, Gary Cooper and Maurice Chevalier. Then, it was a great time to eat some classic popcorn and watching a good movie! 😉

Photo of the Day – Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn

Good night!! 🙂

I’m here tonight just to post this cute photo of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn at backstage of the Academy Awards in 1954. In this same night, Audrey won a Oscar for her performance in “Roman Holiday”, but this I’ll write tomorrow…

Tips of books

Hello darling!!

Tonight I’ll give you a simple tip of two books which I’m using in my monograph to conclude the graduation course in the university and I’ve already used one of them here, in the first posts…

And why I will talk about them? Because they are about classic cinema, of course!

The first one is about the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, its adaptation from novel to cinema, the movie backstages, some stories and a lot of interesting things about the movie. The book also talks about Audrey Hepburn’s career beginning until she starred this film as Holly Golightly. Another interesting theme in this book is how women were represented in the 50’s and 60’s in American cinema. Give a look in a photo of the book (in Brazilian version) and in some pictures which are inside it. All the informations about the book are after the photos (in the original version, in English).

Some pictures in the book

  • Original title: Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. – Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the dawn of the modern woman
  • Author: Sam Wasson
  • Year of publication: 2010
  • Publishing house: Harper

The second tip of book is a Marilyn Monroe’s biography. And I’m indicating this book because you should know that some of her biographies are quite sensationalists. But, reading this one (that a big fan of her, indicated to me), you can see all the stories and legends about this cultural icon treated in a way more serious and credible. Besides, you can realize how the big movie stars were built by Hollywood. Like the another book, the photos are in the Brazilian version of the book and the informations are after.

New Babies

Hello!! 🙂

After some changes, I’m here again!

Today I’ll show you my beautiful (and new) babies, which a friend of mine bought for me in his last travel.

New DVDs

Yeah, I’m talking about more two Audrey Hepburn’s movies! (the titles are in Portuguese cause they were bought in São Paulo, Brazil!)

– The first one is “Love In The Afternoon” (1957), starred by Audrey Hepburn, Gary Cooper and Maurice Chevalier, directed by Billy Wilder. This romance tells the story about a detective (Maurice Chevalier) who is hired to follow a woman suspected of infidelity with a womanizer (Gary Cooper). Then, the detective’s daughter, Ariane (Audrey Hepburn), falls in love with this guy. There is a little bit of drama and action in this movie too.

– The second movie is “The Unforgiven” (1960), starred by Audrey Hepburn and Burt Lancaster, directed by John Huston. This movie is the only western in Audrey’s career and tells the story of Rachel Zachary, an indian who was adopted by a white family and, after a long time, it was discovered her indian’s blood and this causes big fights in the community.

So, with these two new DVDs, my Audrey movies collection is growing up!! There are fourteen movies right now! 😀

And you? Do you have some movies’ collection? Tell me, I would love to read about! 😉
