HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. – The exquisite Audrey Hepburn stars as the free-spirited
Holly Golightly in the unforgettable masterpiece BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and debuting on Blu-ray September 20, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment.

Mickey Rooney and earned Oscars® for Best Song ("Moon River") and Best Score.
