Morning Man Classic: George Peppard!

The luminous Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly isn’t the only reason why I’ve watched Breakfast at Tiffanys more than 100 times.

I fell hard for the beautiful George Peppard as Paul Varjak, a young writer being kept by the older married woman played by Patricia Neal.

It was a gorgeous performance that made Peppard a major film star for a time. He went on to appear in the epic western How the West Was Won and the dramatic saga The Carpetbaggers. After his film stardom faded, Peppard turned to television starring in the 70s series Banacek and the 80s hit The A Team. He was originally cast as Blake Carrington in Dynasty but was fired after the pilot after clashing with producers.

The actor was just 65 and battling lung cancer when he died in 1994 of pneumonia.

3 Remarks

  1. Such a great-looking guy, and a great movie…..he’s 100% male, no baggage. This was the time when movies were worth seeing.

  2. He was gorgeous, but difficult to work with, I understand.

    Tried to like Breakfast at Tiffany’s but just couldn’t get past Mickey Rooney’s cringe inducing racist portrayal of an Asian man. It is bad! Really bad! The only thing I liked in the movie was the song “Moon River” and the version that played on the radio was better.
