An easy, fun read about the making of Audrey Hepburn into a star and the behind the scenes filming of Breakfast at Tiffany's. I never read Capote's book and only saw the movie once. However, this book has made me decide to enjoy it one more time at least.

Although the gist of the book concentrates on Hepburn, there are great pieces about Capote, Blake Edwards, Henry Mancini, Givinchy and scores of other big names who were in Hepburn's orbit. Growing up we had a neighbor who blasted Moon River constantly. To this day that song always makes me smile.

Recommend for those of you who like the Hollywood bio's and anyone who loves vintage Hollywood. ( )

Since I don't remember seeing Breakfast at Tiffany's and know almost nothing about Audrey Hepburn, I don't remember what caught my eye about this book - it's been on my Kindle for 10 (!) years, so thought it was time to read it or dump it.

A short, quick read of only 230 pages, I finished it in a day - it was more interesting than I expected. I didn't know that the movie is based on a Truman Capote book, was directed by Blake Edwards with music by Henry Mancini and was the debut of Moon River written for the movie. The book actually opens with a brief history of Capote and how he viewed women and came to write the book.

Though ostensibly about Audrey Hepburn and the making of the movie, it is just as much about the changing views about women and sex in film. The more puritanical viewpoint of the 50s (Doris Day, Sandra Dee) was gradually evolving to the more realistic and evolved woman of the 60s. 'Breakfast' was one of the first in portraying that change.

Well researched and written, it was a pleasure to read and learn more about the Hollywood of the 50s and early 60s. I liked the behind the scenes scoop on making movies, making movie deals, and how the whole Hollywood machine works. Recommended for film buffs and readers who like memoirs or Hollywood history. ( )

This book is such a swift, sweet, smart stroll through the making of the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s that it takes a little while for one to realize how slick, undemanding, adorable, and unintelligent it really is. The penny doesn’t drop until 5:10 at least.
 
Mr. Wasson approaches his subject from many angles. His book winds up as well-tailored as the kind of little black dress that “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” made famous.

If there is one fact of life that Audrey Hepburn is dead certain of, adamant about, irrevocably committed to, it's that her married life, her husband and her baby, come first and far ahead of her career. She said so the other day on the set of Breakfast at Tiffany's, the Jurow-Shepherd comedy for Paramount, in which she plays a New York play girl, cafe society type, whose constancy is highly suspect. This unusual role for Miss Hepburn brought up the subject of career women vs. wives -- and Audrey made it tersely clear that she is by no means living her part. Paramount Pictures Publicity, November 28, 1960

Like one of those accidents that's not really an accident, the casting of "good" Audrey in the part of "not-so-good" call girl Holly Golightly rerouted the course of women in the movies, giving voice to what was then a still-unspoken shift in the 1950s gender plan.
