... that you can read the Breakfast at Tiffany's screenplay.

... That in 1966 a Broadway musical based on Breakfast at Tiffany's opened and closed after four performances. The star was Mary Tyler Moore. You can read the inside story of how it failed here. and sadly learn that MTM's performance as Holly Golightly was "atrocious". Years later a cast recording was made but is not widely available anymore.

... that the movie was based on novella written by Truman Capote called Breakfast at Tiffany's: A Short Novel and Three Stories. It has been widely reported that Mr. Capote wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly Golightly. Try to picture it. In the mini documentary Making of a Classic the director Blake Edwards confirms the story.

... that in 1995 a band called Deep Blue Something had a huge hit with a song called Breakfast At Tiffany's. The lyrics tell of a couple who fear they have nothing in common but then he remembers the movie and says in the catchy refrain ... "What about Breakfast at Tiffany's . . . As I recall we both kind of liked it"
