Breakfast at Tiffany's

Question: When Paul knocks on Holly's door and she isn't wearing anything, she says to him "would you turn around? Oh, never mind, it's such a silly line anyway - I'll turn around instead." What joke is she referring to?

Answer: Holly is referring to the fact that people often ask others in the room "Will you turn around?" when they are dressing or in the nude, so the person cannot see them naked. She is simply stating she thinks it is odd that the second person is always asked to turn around, when the person herself could turn around.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when George Peppard is talking to Audrey Hepburn in the alley and it's raining heavily, his hair switches between being combed back and combed to the side. Very obvious - this takes place several times.

Holly Golightly: I've got to do something about the way I look. I mean a girl just can't go to Sing Sing with a green face.
