I only have three of the previously available films (Roman Holiday, Funny Face and My Fair Lady), so I'm thrilled to see this set coming! Out of curiosity (for those who have any of the other three previously available titles), do any of these appear to have any new extras? I'm just trying to figure out whether any of these will be new transfers (since three or four of the earlier releases could do with new transfers), or whether this is likely to just be a repackaging of the previously available discs plus the new-to-blu Paris When It Sizzles (which is what I'm guessing is most likely to be the case).

I think they would have made a point of mentioning it in the press release if any of these were new transfers.

All of the bonuses sound familiar and nothing appears to be new. Check previous HTF reviews to match against the lists here.

The only significant thing here is Paris When It Sizzles. Paramount has never released that one on Blu Ray in the US. They're baiting us Hepburn fanatics, and I'm probably going to fall for it. Just take my $40-$50 and give me my disc! :laugh:

I am surprised anything is new on this set. Now if Paramount had released a 4K seven film set only "My Fair Lady" would have been previously released. Still the digital codes are a nice extra. Those were not previously included with most of these films previous releases.

I doubt these are new transfers. I'd love a new one for Funny Face because the existing Blu-ray disc is too dark.

This cash grab reissue is insulting to both Audrey and Breakfast At Tiffany's. As the press release says

Celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Breakfast at Tiffany’s

with a New 7-Movie Blu-ray™ Collection of Audrey Hepburn Classics


If Paramount wanted to actually celebrate Tiffany's anniversary we would have hopefully gotten a well put together edition, but those days are long gone now. These re-releases show that Tiffany's and other classic Paramount titles need to be handled by a company that will respect and give then honor they deserve. I would love to see Criterion get the chance to do a fantastic release of Tiffany's as I know they would blow everyone away with it.

The cover of this set is the same as an already released DVD set. Paramount couldn't even be bothered creating a new cover.
This set has nothing to do with "Breakfast at Tiffany's other the set being released in a year that happens to be in an anniversary year that ends in a "5" or "0"for "Tiffany's".

If the price is right, then it at least offers a good way to buy the three best movies here ... My Fair Lady, Sabrina and Funny Face. And Paris When it Sizzles makes a fourth outing worth viewing.
Roman Holiday is an interesting period-piece, War and Piece isn't a patch on the novel, while Breakfast at Tiffany's leaves me totally cold. Such a contrived piece of schmaltz. A couple of friends and I wagged an afternoon from school to go look at it during its premiere run in Melbourne. We all concurred it was a total waste of our pocket-money, so we went and blew the rest on chocolate frappes at Hillier's in Collins St instead (an iconic place right next to Melbourne's Cinerama cinema). Much the better buy.

I'd rather watch Breakfast at Tiffany's a thousand times to a single viewing of the abysmal Paris When It Sizzles. Different strokes, I guess. And Roman Holiday is one of the greats.

In retrospect, you're right, Matt, about Paris When it Sizzles. I now remember being totally undewhelmed last time I saw it.
As for 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', I'm pleased so many people love it. There's lots I love that certain other people would chuck in the garbage. Just ask my wife.

I just recently watched Paris When it sizzles again on iTunes. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. More so than the first time I saw it.

I have 5 of these films on digital, but this is a great set if you do not have these titles.

I bought the iTunes HD streaming version of The Nun's Story because I just couldn't wait any longer. The last time I spied it on TCM, they were using that transfer, too, and it looked very nice, but a Blu-ray by Warner Archive would likely be mesmerizing.
