"Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) Originally, Marilyn Monroe was cast in the iconic role of Holly Golightly in the film adaptation of Truman Capote's novel. When Audrey Hepburn took on the role, she made it her own, imbuing the character with her own taste and her long-standing creative relationship with Hubert de Givenchy.
... Paul Varjak: Sure. Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name! - Breakfast at Tiffany's directed by Blake Edwards (1961) Novel by Truman Capote #trumancapote
