Exclamation Maybe down to $5 at Target now...?!

I actually saw a shelf tag for this tonight for only $5 at one of my local Targets. Like many here, I saw it in the $7.50 section last week, but it may have dropped even further this week. There weren't any copies available to scan and verify the price, but the (top) shelf tag definitely said Breakfast at Tiffany's Blu-ray $5. Maybe someone else can find a copy at their Target to scan and see if that shelf tag I saw was indeed accurate, so anyone on the fence at the $7.50 price can get their butts in gear and finally grab this...
Collector of stuff...

I just watched it via Amazon streaming the other night for the first time. Loved it! I'll check Target for it Tues.

You can get the 50th anniversary edition from WBshop for $7.39. The picture doesn't show a slipcover, though.

The Warner pressings do not have a slipcover.

Today, my local Target had a tag for TIFFANYS in the five dollar section. Sadly, there weren't any discs in that row, however.

Just watched this last night (along with THX 1138 ). Tiffany's was a keeper, not so sure about THX. Both, however, were great upgrades of older films. Nice to hear the expanded (stereo) music track and occasional foley effect on Tiffany's, very tastefully done.

As mentioned previously, I bought this for $7.50 at Target not too long ago. I went in yesterday and the shelf tag said $5 but it rang up as $7.50 at the register. I asked the cashier if I could show him the $5 shelf tag. He said "ok" and walked over to the shelf tag with me. He said "I don't remember the shelf tag changing but I will give you the $5 price anyways". So now I'm going to take the sealed BD copy back to Target with my old receipt to get my $7.50 refunded. Thanks for the info, Matt C.

I just bought a copy of TIFFANY'S at my local Target--for $7.50. The five dollar tag from two weeks ago had been replaced.

All instances where Caucasian actors play Asian or African American characters are now considered offensive, not least because there are plenty of actors of that ethnicity who are being put out of a job by casting a white person.

The reason why you didn't hear much in regards to Remo Williams is because that was an obscure flop of a film, while Breakfast at Tiffany's is considered a much loved classic and also because the performance by Rooney was so grotesque. Even many people who love the film have a problem with Rooney's casting.
So what do the "PC Police" expect, studios to go back and edit-out scenes like this from every movie made pre-PC ?

I'm half Italian ... can I get all mafia movies that make Italians look bad removed from circulation ?

The OP said nothing like that at all, talk about missing the point and over exaggerating.

After purchasing this Breakfast at Tiffany's Blu-ray from the $7 bin at Best Buy a couple months back, I finally got around to watching it, and I could not be happier. It's a great transfer of a 1960s Technicolor film.

Holly Golightly has problems, but it's still impossible not to fall in love with her.

This movie tends to be featured at Fox Theatre here in Atlanta during their summer series, and it's a great date suggestion.

I purchased a brand new copy with slipcover off eBay a week or so ago (for $30) and finally got around to watching it tonight. Even though this was a pure blind buy, I have heard stellar comments about the movie for many years, including from members of my own family, my parents, who saw the movie in theaters many years ago.

Despite the steep price for the first pressing disc, I could not have been happier with the purchase, and am ashamed I have not gotten around to watching this movie sooner.

Rooney's performance is outdated and racist even for 1961, IMO. Even taking the fact it's a comedy I can't defend the portrayal of that character. Its not just making Asians 'look bad', its stereotyping the look, accent, mannerisms, everything. Of course he's an actor acting, but he must have thought at some point it was offensive.

Better late than never. I'm glad it really worked out for you. I blind bought this when it came out and couldn't have been happier with it either.

Yes, and the Wayan brothers portrayed bubble-headed white girls in White Chicks, but you don't hear any belly-aching about that (other than it was a terrible movie). There's also been a bit of backlash about Flower Drum Song by some because of its portrayal of asians despite it being an almost entirely asian cast with the exeption of Juanita Hall who is african american playing an asian character. The musical is based on a novel by C.Y. Yee a chinese american author who has also recently been accused of perpetuating asian stereotypes. Bottom line is, take the movie for what its worth and the time it was made. Peoples opinions and tastes have evolved, so does that mean no one is allowed to view or enjoy these movies? Look, if it offends you, don't watch or buy it.

I've added quite a few of her other performances to my Amazon wishlist, My Fair Lady, Sabrina, and Funny Face. It's a shame Roman Holiday is not available on the format at this time... I swear I can never keep my wish list to under 400 titles for any lengthy period of time... LOL

Breakfast At Tiffany's was once part of the upgrade and save program at Best Buy. 9.99-crappy DVD = 5

Didn't offend me, as I know its a comedy, its just a movie, and a darn fine one.
