At the time I recalled seeing several times the Disney production 'Captain Eo' @ Disneyland Paris.

The full version of this 1986 short film, including the song 'We Here To Change The World'.

Struggling writer Paul Varjak [George Peppard] moves into a New York apartment building on Manhattan's swank East Side and becomes intrigued by his pretty, quirky neighbor Holly Golightly.
