 M ovie-lore Bonanza-     **Audrey Hepburn in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)  If asked about  my choice of d best scene of d Movie. is when her old Husband comes to take her back to d countryside, when Audrey & Pepper comes to see him off at d Bus Depot, & as d Bus slowly departs  without her, Audrey's act & her Husband looking behind knowing that this was d last-time they would b seeing each other again has a strange goose-pimply effect on me. The Man trying  understanding of his own drawbacks, age & looks of his rural background who shall never want to stay back in being a Manhattan socialite yet d  chemistry between them, their protective feeling towards each other & d  way she tries to convince him that wasn't d same innocent girl he had married, she Holly Golightly d small town girl, confused, innocent who came with  dreamy eyes to make a niche for herself in d Big-Apple but getting lost in d big concrete jungle, losing her innocence  & mixed  with people who r all dazed in trying to b d in-crowd making money in dubious ways, trying to fit-in d fast-paced life of  d concrete jungle. D  feeling of mutually agreeing never to see each other again giving her d money he had saved & Audrey running towards d bus asking him to take care of himself with Peppard is lost & looking like a by-std extra. A superb scene in d mold of David Lean's Brief Encounter (45) esp d climax scene, of d portrayal of a dark, dismal,smoky Railway platform that matched d atmosphere2 lovers mutually agreeing to go their separate ways because both were married,  & Curtiz's Casablanca(42) d climax scene of d classy 'Hill of beans in this crazy World ...' Bogart says to Ingrid, with every scene to watch over  styled dialogue a tear-jerker full of poignant aura descending every-time I see these scene, Hat's off  Truman Capote & Blake Edwards.

  •   Hollywood Bonanza- Randomly selected Stars & a Dir. 
  • Ursala Andress in Dr.No(62) d 1st  Official Bond flick as Honey Ryder. Honey's 1st appearance in that movie was to emerge from d water wearing a bikini & instantly captivating d audience & over-nite she became d Sex-Symbol of that decade & her bikini style became an instant rage, copied by many actresses like Jessica Alba till d present day. Her fame is best described in d popular flick "Shawshank Redemption" where d pin-up girl changes according to d style-icons in demand that year or decade. ,each poster was a sign of years that had passed. Her poster makes way for a new sex-symbol, Raquel Welch, who starred in d movie 'One Million years B.C.' in 1967 this unique style of showing d years passing & d length of years/decades of Tim Robbins serving time in that Prison is a new way for d time being showed needs to b lauded.
