The Rock-itt : February 2014
b By The Rock-itt’s Mister Movies.. Robert Florczak Visit....http://wwwrobertflorczak.com "Blue Hawaii" - From the moment in 1956 that I heard "Heartbreak Hotel," his first hit, I became a fervent Elvis fan. It didn't matter to me that over time his films became more and more formulaic (his earliest wer e some of the best of the rock 'n roll genre), I saw them all and collected each soundtrack album. On one of my trips to Hawaii, it was recommended to me to try the excellent snorkeling to be found at Hanauma Bay. I did indeed snorkel there and found it absolutely wondrous, but all the while I was more enamored with the fact that that ver y beach was used to great extent in "Blue Hawaii," the King's most successful film and soundtrack album. So enam ored, in fact, that I walked into the sea wearing a brand new Fossil watch. It never again wor ked! "Br eakfast At Tiffany's" - While I, m yself (like our editor-in- chief, Pete Johnson), are dedicated followers of the life and work of Errol Flynn, my wife has always been a fan of wonderful Audrey Hepburn. As a result, I've tailored some of our trips to include key locations from the actress' film s and personal life, even paying homage to her birth home in Brussels on a trip through Belgium. "Breakfast At Tiffany's" was filmed in and around New York City and several years ago, while on a trip there, we located the building used as the front of her residence in the film. My wife eagerly posed on the same stoop th at Miss Hepburn had run up and down in a number of scenes. As you can see, the weather we had was decidedly chillier than when Audrey as H olly Golightly was captured by the camera there in 1961. See you next month for more strolling.......
