About this item

Sam Wasson, who previously documented the life and career of director Blake Edwards, zeroes in on Edwards's most beloved film with this delicious history of BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S. Wasson provides an expert critical analysis of the film's groundbreaking status in cinema history for its portrayal of a sexually liberated single woman as a lead character. But more importantly for film fans, he revels in all the requisite gossip about the making of the film, including the near-casting of Marilyn Monroe in the lead role (at the behest of Truman Capote), the evolution of Audrey Hepburn's little black dress, and one producer's bone-headed efforts to cut Henry Mancini's classic "Moon River" from the soundtrack. Selected by Publishers Weekly as a 2010 Top 100 Book.
