Breakfast at Tiffany's
In this 1961 comedy based on a novel by Truman Capote, Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) is a Manhattan party girl looking for glamour, fun, and some money to pay the rent at her brownstone apartment. Madcap antics ensue as she gets involved with the young writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard) and a variety of odd characters. This 1962 Oscar-winning film has an all-star cast, including Patricia Neal, Mickey Rooney, and Buddy Ebsen, and introduced the song "Moon River."
A Shot in the Dark
In this 1964 madcap whodunit, French inspector Jacques Clouseau (Peter Sellers) uses his skills at deduction—and causing mayhem—to capture a murderer and exonerate the falsely accused Maria Gambrelli (Elke Sommer). This first sequel to The Pink Panther (1963), directed by Blake Edwards, is considered one the best film comedies of all time.
The Man Who Knew Too Much
Dr. Benjamin McKenna (James Stewart) and his wife Josephine (Doris Day), a retired musical theater actress, are in Morocco when they witness a murder, learn of an assassination plot, and become inextricably tangled in a web of crime and intrigue. This 1956 Alfred Hitchcock thriller won an Oscar for Best Music, Original Song—"Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera)."
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The original 1971 screen adaption of Roald Dahl's classic children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory stars Gene Wilder as the mysterious and reclusive chocolate-maker Willy Wonka. This musical, with a screenplay by the author, is a humorous and action-packed story of the consequences of good and bad behavior—a favorite of children and adults.
