Mickey Rooney as Mr Yunioshi In the 1961 romantic comedy Breakfast at Tiffany's, Audrey Hepburn played flighty New York City escort Holly Golightly. The relatively small role of her Japanese landlord, Mr. Yunioshi, was strangely played by...Mickey Rooney. Director Blake Edwards instructed Rooney to play Yunioshi as a caricature of an Asian. Accordingly Rooney wore false dentures to give him protruding front teeth. He also spoke in a way that the letter L came out as an R sound. ('Miss Go-right-ry' was how he pronounced the main character's name.) Most of the time Mr. Yunioshi yelled rather than spoke. Based on 21st-century political correctness, Rooney's performance clearly falls within the bounds of bad taste, but as Rooney noted shortly before he died, for the first 40 years after Breakfast at Tiffany's was released, nobody complained. In fact, Rooney claimed that Asian fans of the film always thought his portrayal of Mr. Yunioshi was very amusing.

This very offensive portrayal is why this movie cannot be shown today.

It can't be shown? I've seen it on TV recently.

I watched this movie for the first time in its entirety about two years ago. (I borrowed a DVD copy from the public library.) I think it's highly overrated--although Audrey Hepburn is utterly gorgeous in it. To me it's a chick flick with both the main characters being more unlikable than likable. As anyone who has read my posts here ought to know well, I loathe political correctness, but even I found Mickey Rooney's role in this film to be cringe-worthy.
