Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a classic, people all over the world still falling in love with it 50 years later. We’ve compiled the 18 most memorable moments.

For most, the most iconic look in film history is battled between Marilyn Monroe’s The Seven Year Itch and Audrey Hepburn’s black dress in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. A movie that is filled with memorable scenes, the film based on the Truman Capote novel of the same name is still a favorite even now, fifty years after its release.

Though the adaptation was hated by Truman Capote himself, it made Audrey Hepburn the cultural icon she is today. The original novel had Holly as more of a Marilyn Monroe type (and she was the actress that Capote had envisioned for his heroine) but it was Hepburn that would bring her to life. And she’d do so with a straight Paul Varjak at her side (another change from the novel).

The ending is different and a lot of the novels core moments shifted in the film adaptation but that doesn’t change the fact that the movie is considered to be a classic. It is one of the great romantic stories we have and, even though the novel is completely different, the film holds its own.

So we have narrowed down the 18 most memorable moments of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. From the iconic opening number to the kiss in the rain, we’re looking at the movie that finally defined what it feels like to be afraid and not know why.
