Review

"Rizzoli has released an exquisite tribute to Truman Capote's magical vision of Manhattan with Breakfast at Tiffany's The Official 50th Anniversary Companion." ~The New York Times

"One of the great moments in a movie classic and to mark its 50th anniversary a handsome book has been published It is as elegant to behold as the late Hepburn herself. Even the cover with silver lettering on Tiffany blue paper looks like a gift from the famous Fifth Avenue jewelry store. Breakfast at Tiffany's was a wonderful movie and this is a fine tribute to it." ~Courier Journal

"This (along with the DVD) is a perfect gift for movie buffs." ~JoyHog.com

This lovingly executed book is the perfect companion to the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's". It is filled with studio photos (most I had not seen before), De Givenchy drawings, script pages, etc., as well as interesting stories about those involved with the film. If you care about Audrey Hepburn and this film, you will love this book!

I'm a huge Capote and film fan. Obviously, Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my favorites from both. This companion is the ultimate guide to Breakfast at Tiffany's, filled with great stories from the cast/crew, amazing wardrobe sketches, never before seen photos and of course the now infamous "airbrushed" Audrey publicity photo before retouching and post-airbrushing comparison. I pre-ordered this, had to have it, it did not take me long to finish it.

I also would recommend Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. by Sam Wasson, but I believe Wasson writes more "text-book" like, for film buffs in general.

This is the second book I have read this year about one of my favorite films, "Breakfast at Tiffanys," the other book being "Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M." They are both nice companion pieces to a film I consider to be a tribute to Hollywood film making. The other book has much more biographical data on Capote, Audrey Hepburn, the screenwriter George Axelrod, director Blake Edwards, etc. This book is larger in size and pictures many beautiful color photographs from the film, many off-camera shots, etc. There is also a great deal of information although, as stated, not as much as the other book. It is a beautiful book to look at or browse through.
With the possible exception of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn was probably the most charismatic actress I can think of in cinema history. The camera loved her and she was incapable of taking a bad shot. She and George Peppard are wonderful in this film (despite the fact that Capote did not want her for this role and director Edwards did not want Peppard.) The end scene of their kissing in the rain, with Holly's cat between them, is absolutely magical and a wonderful part of motion picture history.
Another thing I love about this film is the fact that some of it was filmed on location in New York City. As someone who was ten years old when this film was made and who has lived in New York his entire life, I enjoy looking back at the Manhattan of 1961, as featured in this film. (This book has many wonderful photos shot on the streets of Manhattan as they were making this film.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this book (and the other as well.) If you love this film or are a big fan of the incomparable Audrey Hepburn, you will greatly enjoy it.

Who doesn't love Audrey Hepburn? Even my 15 year old granddaughter had a Tiffany themed 13th BDay party!! This book is awesome. It's got everything anyone would want or need to know about the movie in it. It is beautiful made, a gorgeous Tiffany blue color cover. I bought it specifically to place on my coffee table as a coffee table book but everyone who has visited has taken it and looked through it. It really is the perfect book for anyone who is a fan of the movie or Audrey Hepburn.

I love it! I am currently reading a beautiful color book. That book is delivered on right time. I wanted the book because I love the movie of same title very much. Audrey Hepburn is a wonderful actress. I remember hearing about her sometimes in my young adult days. I was about getting to know Audrey. I saw her last movie, "Always", in my time.

This is an amazingly beautiful book! It comes with a cover that has Tiffany in a shiny silver font. Pages are a slick durable paper stock and many are in full color. Retails for $30 so this is an excellent value!

My friends and I gave this book as a gift to a friend who was diagnosed with cancer. He would take this book with him when he went to chemotherapy. It gave him joy and helped him cope. He said it was a perfect gift and reminded him of the beauty of life.
