Audrey Films

Ok, I feel like I've been a million miles away...I've finished the first part of my training and have been busy setting up both shops.

Whilst enjoying my lovely new studio, I've come to realise how lovely it is to create and watch old movies...so far Breakfast at Tiffany's, Roman Holiday and Funny Face.

Let's just say, LOVE Breakfast at Tiffany's, she's so absolutely mad and adorable.

Breakfast at Tiffany's
Roman Holiday

Funny Face

I am in love with that wedding dress, oh AND when they dance on the barge, how gorgeous!
Fred Estaire makes this film, though it is hard to see him in the "dashingly hansome leading man" kind of a role, when he kisses her in th bookstore, he didn't seem charming as is intended but more like a creepy old man...but hey maybe my crush on Gene Kelly is clouding my judgement :)

There's quotes from Audrey Hepburn quoting that putting "cat" out in the rain was one of the worst things she's ever had to do on film.

I came across an interview on YouTube of Ms Hepburn when she was 60, she's all class. She's speaks of her trauma through the war and her children and working in films...truly a beautiful woman.
This is the first of 4 parts of the interview, you can click on the next as it finishes.
