Overview

A celebration of a timeless classic, this companion volume, timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the release of the iconic film, is the perfect book for any fan of Audrey Hepburn or the cinema. This gorgeously illustrated tribute to Breakfast at Tiffany's is the only official companion to be published in association with Paramount Pictures and the Audrey Hepburn estate. It celebrates the film's ongoing popularity:complete with candid behind-the-scenes photos, facsimiles of the shooting script, full-color reproductions of the poster art, a special section on the costumes, the score for Moon River, and much more. Many of the illustrations included have never been published before.
Breakfast at Tiffany's features a top-notch cast, including George Peppard, Mickey Rooney, and Patricia Neal, yet Holly Golightly was the role that transformed Audrey Hepburn into a movie icon. Dressed by Hubert de Givenchy, directed by the infamous Blake Edwards, and brandishing the trademark cigarette holder, hers was the most memorable role.  Rich in detail and in illustration, this keepsake tribute volume is the perfect celebration of a beloved classic.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

On October 5th, 1961, Holly Golightly strolled into our lives as Breakfast at Tiffany's opened in movie theatres. Thanks substantially to the iridescent performance of Audrey Hepburn and a fine supporting cast, this film based on a Truman Capote novella became that rare classic that actually gathers more allure with age. This official, large format 50th anniversary pictorial celebration offers an unprecedented view into its creation. Drawing on studio archives and other sources, this companion contains behind-the-scenes photos, shooting script facsimiles, full-color reproductions of poster art, and a special section on the costumes, the "Moon River' score and much more. (P.S. Like the movie itself, this is no mere retread: Approximately half the material in this gift book is previously unpublished.)

From the Publisher
"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
