  • Audrey Hepburn singing “Moon River” in “Breakfast at Tiffany's“, 1961 ————————————————————————- There comes a moment in Breakfast at Tiffany's where Holly Golightly is feeling blue, so she pulls out a guitar, settles down on her fire escape, and softly sings, "Moon River". Hepburn, who was not known as a singer, performed the song herself, singing sweetly, if sparingly on the track, filling it with romantic yearning for a simpler life. Their work didn't impress the studio, though. The way Mancini tells it, the president of Paramount Pictures watched an early preview of the film and announced that the song had to be removed. "The normally gentle Hepburn told him firmly that it would be over her dead body," the Telegraph reports.

It's a good thing Hepburn stood up for herself and her song, because more than a million copies of the sheet music were sold in its very first printing. In 1962, Mancini and Mercer were awarded the Oscar for best movie song for "Moon River." It has gone on to be recorded over 500 times by artists like Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Judy Garland, and Sarah Vaughan, even Joan Rivers gave the tune a funny twist singing, "Joan Rivers, older than the sky…" to the iconic tune( Melissa Locker). ————————————————————————- #oldhollywood #vintage #classichollywood #legend #1950s #moviestar #hollywoodstar #hollywoodgreats #1960s #silverscreen #goldenage #goldenageofhollywood #audreyhepburn #audreyhepburnquote #retro #actress #icon #beauty #nostalgia #historyinpictures #fashionhistory #vintagehollywood  #oldmovies #retromovies #goodoldmovies #breakfastattiffanys

  • Thank you, dear @mumtheband for today's magical concert with the movie "Menschen am Sonntag" (1930) ❤️
Finally I visited your concert, aaa! 🔮

ENG.⬇️
And about this movie, that was made in Berlin.
A bit strange to think, but actually many of these actors and film crew afterwards became refugees (because of you know what! ) and migrated to different countries, such as USA, Great Britain etc.
And by the way, Billy Wilder was born in Galicia region (nowadays west Ukraine), that was a part of Austria.
Later he, of course, also moved and lived his life in USA.
It's this man, who made a movie "Some like it hot" (in the case, if you forgot!😆).
.

So, in some point, maybe Germany would be "a heart of the worlds cinematography" if nazis  wouldn't come and made what they made🤷🏻‍♀️...
But now it's too late😆

Выше я много писала о том, что была сегодня на прекрасном концерте исландской группы "Mum". Они играли в сопровождении немого фильма "Люди в воскресенье" (или, точнее, сопровождали фильм). Интересно, что многие люди, работавшие над этим кино, уехали беженцами в США или Великобританию. В итоге "сердце киноиндустрии" оказалось вовсе не в Германии😬, ну, и вы понимаете в связи с какими событиями.
Например тот же Билли Уайлдер мигрировал (он работал над сценарием этого фильма, например). Если вы не узнаете эти прекрасные имя и фамилию, то я напомню, что это он снял" В джазе только девушки")) .
