Danni by rhoing


Danni is relatively new at the shop where I get my hair cut, having moved back to southern Illinois from the Pacific Northwest. This was my second time in her chair and Clare & I have really liked each of Danni's cuts. Today she gave me my “father-of-the-bride haircut” for next week…

Today I confirmed with my bride-to-be daughter, who is a huge film fan, particularly of many classics, "Moon River" for our father-daughter dance. The song, of course is from the 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" — http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054698/ — starring Audrey Hepburn (on Danni's smock) and George Peppard, directed by Blake Edwards, and based on a novel by Truman Capote.

The film won two Oscars in 1962:
1. Best Music, Original Song: Henry Mancini (music) & Johnny Mercer (lyrics) for "Moon River"
2. Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture: Henry Mancini

This is only the 4th "hair stylist" tag on 365:

Well, Moon River - sung by so many - who did you choose. Nice slow dance for you two - a good choice! Your hair stylist is beautiful!

@maggiemae Henry Mancini's version from the movie. The DJ had the short version from "Shall We Dance," but it's only a minute or so long and the intro takes about 15 seconds to recognize.

When the AFI did one of their Top 100 movie lists, they talked to Henry Mancini about the song. He said he knew Audrey Hepburn's range and on a keyboard he played the bottom and top of her range. And those are consecutive notes in the song. Mancini said, "Then the song wrote itself." Well I suppose if you're Henry Mancini that could be the case!
