George Peppard: Man for all reasons

'I Love You' George Peppard. jpegGeorge Peppard was that gorgeous actor in ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn.  Besides being incredibly good looking in a charming boyish sort of way he was also an extremely fine actor during the late 50s and onward. gorgeous George Peppard ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s was probably his most well known film due to the fact that it was so popular.  Peppards stoic and intensely loyal writer character was the perfect foil for Hepburn’s zany antics as Holly Golightly.  Peppard’s character Paul Varjak ( nicknamed Fred ) is the strong sensitive type with a touch of mystery about him much like the actor himself.  Apparently many directors found Peppard difficult to work with as they found him to be quite arrogant but really it was more of his just wanting to play characters with more structure as he did not want to be labelled a pretty boy.
