‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’ 50 years later

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Audrey Hepburn’s portrayal of Holly Golightly premiered at Radio City Music Hall Oct. 5, 1961. But as the LA Times’ Ministry of Gossip blog reminds, the late Truman Capote, who penned the novella upon which the movie was based, had really wanted Marilyn Monroe for the role:
"It was the most miscast film I've ever seen," he said. "Holly Golightly was real — a tough character, not an Audrey Hepburn type at all. The film became a mawkish valentine to New York City. ... It bore as much resemblance to my work as the Rockettes do to Ulanova."
