A closeup examination of Blake Edwards' classic film, Breakfast at Tiffany's, winner of two Oscars.
Audrey Hepburn is an icon like no other, yet the image many of us have of her--dainty, immaculate--is anything but true to life. Here, for the first time, Sam Wasson presents the woman behind the little black dress that rocked the nation in 1961. The first complete account of the making of Breakfast at Tiffany's, this book reveals little-known facts about the cinema classic, and immerses us in the America of the late fifties before Woodstock and birth control, when a not-so-virginal girl by the name of Holly Golightly raised eyebrows across the country, changing fashion, film, and sex for good.--From publisher description.

This book is a wee gem... lots of great info about the movie business. The author has interviewed just about everyone... his footnotes are pretty amazing - and fascinating. Not just for Audrey fans.
