    After BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, TWO FOR THE ROAD is my favorite Audrey Hepburn performance.

    Audrey Hepburn is one of those rare actors that appeals broadly to both men and women. That's something.

    Perhaps there is no one signature role for Miss Hepburn. But for film icon, the role certainly was Holly Golightly.

    I've warmed to Breakfast at Tiffany's over the years. Maybe as I get older the roles seem more compelling.

    I don't "get" this movie. I've never connected w/ it. Loved Hepburn in "My Fair Lady" though.

    Peace,

    I have to agree that Breakfast At Tiffany's and Two for the Road are my favorite Audrey Hepburn pictures. They are almost the only ones where she is paired with someone her own age.

    I never thought she was very good in My Fair Lady. She was too old for the part. Eliza should be in her early 20's. And of course she did not do her own singing. The speaking and singing voices (Marni Nixon) didn't match to my ear. I just did not believe her in the part.

    I did love her in Charade and I love the location filming in Paris.

    Holy Cow!!, not even close. Charade is good..but there are so many that have so much more to say and are better films in the collection . It's not even in Cary's top 5. In my opinion of course..lol.

    Love Breakfast ,and I know you lovers will hate this..but as I look through the movie database and see the list of classic stars and the films they have made and see so many films that still go unreleased completely. I hate to see double dips when those much wanted extras will be watched once and forgotten. Devote the money to unreleased films.

    Well I don't expect others to agree, but I stand by it. I agree that it's not Cary Grant's greatest film, but then North by Northwest isn't part of the Criterion collection (to my knowledge, only two of his films are).

    I've only seen 12 of Audrey Hepburn's films, and by far the worse (IMO) was Two for the Road. I'll never understand the appeal of that film.

    I'm assuming you haven't seen Paris When It Sizzles? The only good part about it was seeing Audrey briefly do the twist in a medieval princess costume.

    Not a great film but far from a film to dump on. I enjoyed it. Plus film lovers can enjoy the many inside jokes and references made in this film.

    Nope. The ones I've seen:

    The Lavender Hill Mob
    Roman Holiday
    Sabrina
    Breakfast at Tiffany's
    Charade
    My Fair Lady
    How to Steal a Million
    Wait Until Dark

    Funny Face
    Robin & Marian
    Always
    Two for the Road

    The first eight I love, the last four I could do without.

    I'm pretty sure you'll make that five with Paris. [​IMG]

    Artwork has been posted here. Still no word on bonus features or whether it has been restored, though.

    I just want to say that Charades is the only Audrey Hepburn film I've seen, and I really enjoyed it. Sorry I have nothing to add to the discussion at hand. :b

    Packaging looks fine. It might have been neat if they went with Tiffany Blue wrapping paper for the outer case but so be it. At least the blue background of Audrey's photo represent the color.

    Minor though. It is all about the film.
