      • No, think we’re in the same ageless grace range! White gloves do add polish to a lady’s suit or coat; can only imagine how that might go over at the local Starbucks, though!
        Best!

    Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of those stories that would benefit from another adaptation, one that is true to the story instead of hindered by the Hays Code. Of course, the world would be up in arms about “remaking Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and I would be up in arms about pop culture writers’ continued inability to distinguish between a remake and an adaptation.

    • I disagree. I think that some movies (this one, and “The Shining”, “It’s a Wonderful Life”, among others) differ from the original book but accidentally stumble onto a magical combination that makes something special – something un-toppable. When this happens, it should be left alone. You can never create a magical accident on purpose – it has to happen organically. An odd casting decision here, a cut scene there, a line that wasn’t in the script… but once it happens, you have to put it up on a pedestal and admire it for all time. There are SO many fabulous stories out there that have never been made into movies – if someone thinks they have the chops to make something great, why not put their stamp on something unique? Rehashing already perfect movie miracles is just sad, costs a lot of money, and doesn’t make anyone happy in the end. If people are that in love with the book…. just read the book.
