Perhaps the greatest of all romantic-comedies, 1961's Breakfast at Tiffany's is based on the bestselling novella by Truman Capote, winner of two Academy Awards (for Original Score and Original Song) and stars two perfect leads.
Stunning Audrey Hepburn plays Holly Golightly (in a role Capote intended for Marilyn Munroe), a seemingly innocent Manhattan call-girl who lives a dizzying, unstructured and mischievous lifestyle, constantly in search of a millionaire to marry. She falls for her neighbour Paul (George Peppard at his best), a struggling writer 'sponsored' by a generous lady patron who in return has romantic expectations. But Paul is fascinated and perplexed – in public Holly flits through parties with a sexy, sophisticated air (wearing Givenchy, no less), but when alone she changes into a sweetly vulnerable bundle of neuroses.
