The movie:Breakfast at Tiffany's
The song: 'Moon River', Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn’s gentle crooning is just one of this movie’s many iconic moments. Covered time and time again, the award-winning 'Moon River' was originally penned by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer specifically to fit the actress’ vocal range.

Bonus knowledge: A behind-the-scenes argument erupted when Paramount bosses briefly considered deleting the song from the film. Hepburn’s response was "over my dead body".
