Holly and Fred

Have you watched the classic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s? It’s memorable on so many levels. You can enjoy it as a comedy, a sad story, or a combination of those. But did you ever notice a familiar voice in a supporting role?

Every Thursday, Holly Golightly commutes to SingSing Prison to visit her “Uncle,” mobster Sally Tomato.

Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) faithfully visits her “uncle” every Thursday. Video from EverythingAudrey.com on YouTube.

Fun fact: Sally Tomato, who of course isn’t actually Holly’s uncle, is played by Alan Reed… did his voice remind you of anyone?


Yabba-Dabba-Dooo! Alan Reed’s also from the town of Bedrock!

And for another fun coincidence, Holly has nicknamed her neighbor, Paul Varjak, “Fred”… after her beloved younger brother. After all, why not…
