Hello, hello! Let’s start our week giving a look in this adorable picture of Shirley MacLaine and Gene Kelly in the movie “What a way to go!” (1964) – I really love this Shirley’s pink hair!
A great week to you all! 🙂
After some hectic months, I’m finally having some days off this week, especially on this weekend. So what’s better than a hot popcorn, a warm blanket and some classic movies to (re)watch? Then, once I was missing so much in these days my favorite person at all, Audrey Hepburn, I’m re-watching (on a marathon, of course!) some of her movies from 60’s…
The chosen was: “Charade” (1963), a Stanley Donen movie, also starred by Cary Grant; “Paris when it sizzles” (1963), also starred by William Holden, this movie had such special participation of Marlene Dietrich, Mel Ferrer (Audrey’s first husband) and Tony Curtis; and “Two for the road” (1967), another Stanley Donen movie, this time co-starred by Albert Finney. Here we go!!
Good morning! Have a great week! 😉

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).
- 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.
- Original title: The secret life of Marilyn Monroe
- Author: J. Randy Taraborrelli
- Year of publication: 2009
- Publishing house: Rose Books
I hope you have enjoyed these tips!! See you! 😉
To start this new category here in the blog, let’s see
again this beautiful scene of Holly Golightly singing “Moon River” in her window. Enjoy! ❤
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.
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! 😉
