I have always felt that Breakfast At Tiffany’s is one of the most over-rated “classic” movies out there. I still like it, of course it’s still good. But one of the greatest movies of all time? Hardly. It features an unlikeable main character who does irritating things and is rewarded for it, and a pretty offensive Chinese caricature from Mickey Rooney. Well, it was 1961.
That being said, the new Blu-Ray version of Breakfast At Tiffany’s, out September 20th from Paramount Home Entertainment, is well worth having. One of the great things about the film is the look. The costumes, the fashion, and Audrey Hepburn’s smoking hotness. All come through magnificently in high definition.
The thing is, I’ve seen all this before. And by “all this”, I mean the movie itself, the commentary with it, and every one of the special features. Everything you get on this new Blu-Ray disc is identical to what you got on the Centennial Collection edition of Breakfast At Tiffany’s, released a couple of years ago by Paramount. The same “style icon” featurettes, even the same trailers. So although the Blu-Ray is the one to pick up if you have NO copies of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, it’s unnecessary if you already have the last edition.
