Breakfast at Tiffany's Trailer
Though the book and the movie are vastly different, the essence
of how great this book truly is still is emphasized in both versions
in the sense of the free spirit. Although Truman Capote had in mind
Marilyn Monroe for the role in who he wanted to portray,
it made sense why Audrey Hepburn ended up with the role as the
different direction the movie took. When you read the book
Holly Golightly can be definitely be envisioned as Marilyn Monroe,
But a world filled with complexity, eccentricity, glamour combined
with a happy ending how did this translate?
Simply through the clothes and the environment of the film,
especially with the elegance of Holly Golightly. The film
didn't want to capture the reality of the character of the book,
instead it wanted to capture the magic of the fantasy of who
Holly Golightly could be. There are moments that reflect
Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's world, and it is through
the random oddities of life moments within the film.
The scene where Holly Golightly enters the beginning
of the party scene with a sheet as her dress until she decided to change?
It was both risque, minimal, yet elegant it was emphasizing the elaborate and
tumultuous world of Holly Golightly in book and film. Was Truman Capote pleased
with this particular take of his book? Not in the least and is probably what many
headaches authors go through. Bt one must admit, if this film did not take the turn
that it did it probably would not have been so monumental. The party scene is filled
with vibrant decadence and reflection of all these references that we continue to
For instance, this scene I personally loved:
A watch on the ankle has to be the most out of left field scene
I have ever encountered and did I want to wear a watch on my
ankle? Indeed I did! This is why the film had so much staying
power to this day. It really reflected the reality of life situations,
Holly Golightly wanted a glamorous life for herself, but her
reality was far darker than she wanted to admit. Life can be
filled with so many left field moments even in how we
encounter style, and when we see these wild characters
we learn that they are all making the most of what they
It is a phenomenal movie, definitely my second
favorite after Funny Face and I am still inspired
by it every time I watch it. I do appreciate both
the book and the film, in fact the book is really
way ahead of it's time if you really want to know
who Holly Golightly it is, fair warning it is a tad darker
in subject but very thought provoking and a great book!
