screenplay by George Axelrod, based on the novella by Truman Capote

by Bill Chambers Would Paul Varjak (George Peppard) be in love with Holly Golightly if she didn't look like Audrey Hepburn? That's the question I kept asking myself as I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's, the story of a batty woman who overcomes her personality enough to make her downstairs neighbour, a published author, fall for her. She's a socialite too busy for housework; he'd be destitute if he didn't have a sugar mama (Patricia Neal). Both are humoured by the champagne crowd, but ultimately, Paul can't even afford a mid-priced gift for Holly when they go shopping together at Tiffany's.
