As a good Anglophile, I can tell you that there's no such thing as "American English"!

DS, a classic clip indeed!

Miss Hepburn had it all. Elegance, grace, beauty, presence, craft.... tough to find the likes of her artistic stature today! She is one of our family's favorites: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000030/

As for this Tiffany's movie: Directed by Blake Edwards, music by Henry Mancini, original novel by Truman Capote (I never realized before!), and a timeless 1957 Chevy parked at the curb - the icing on the era:

1964: First appearance of The Beatles on the U.S. TV program, The Ed Sullivan Show. 73 million people watched (about 45% of the U.S. population)

I was in the 5th grade and I think the family watched Red Skelton instead. Monday morning at school I thought when they were all talking about the mop heads it was about the Muppets who did the openings for Red Skelton. (Mahna Mahna)
