I have just come home after watching the classic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the first time, and it certainly was not what I expected! I went in completely unaware other than the most prominent details (I knew of Audrey Hepburn, the LBD, and the name Holly Golightly sp?) but I was really caught off guard! The racist characterization of an Asian man played by Mickey Rooney (assumedly for his pratfall and general physical comedy abilities) was disturbing as was the laissez-faire attitude to what seemed to be low-stakes prostitution! I was also distracted by George Peppard at the start because I had to pull out my phone to confirm my hunch that I was looking at a young Hannibal from the A-Team. Overall I enjoyed the movie, but I was expecting a much different tale.
