Audrey Hepburn had one of her most iconic roles as consummate Manhattan playgirl Holly Golightly in this sparkling adaptation of the Truman Capote novella.


A small-town Southern girl masquerading as a Manhattan socialite, Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) lives in a brownstone on the swank East Side, throws stylish parties, and works as a part-time escort while searching for money, love, and ultimately to define herself in the hectic life she leads. Though she has her mind set on marrying a South American millionaire, Holly soon finds her plans complicated by her innocent dealings with an imprisoned ex-mobster and the young writer next door (George Peppard), who is determined to marry her. Loosely adapted from Truman Capote's acidulous novella and bubbling along to the memorable score by Henry Mancini (who won an Academy Award for his soon-to-be standard "Moon River"), director Blake Edwards and screenwriter George Axelrod's frothy, bittersweet romantic comedy provided the adorably elfin Hepburn with the most iconic role of her career.
