Blake Edwards
Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard

When a woman speaks longingly of finding the perfect “little black dress,” she’s probably remembering Audrey Hepburn in this sparkling, bittersweet adaptation of Truman Capote’s novella about Manhattan life. The lovely bumpkin Holly Golightly reinvents herself with the help of Givenchy’s spare, elegant gowns, a long cigarette holder and a headful of illusions. The queen of classic costumers, Edith Head, designed for Hepburn’s foil, the worldly Patricia Neal, and the film itself is poised between the high style of old Hollywood and the changes of the 1960s. “For Audrey-philes, this is at the top of the heap, a true star vehicle that allows her to be kooky, dramatic, winsome, tragic and breathtakingly beautiful.” (American Film)
