Fifth Avenue, 5AM:

Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's

Fifth Avenue, 5AM: by Sam Wasson
Not available
Before Breakfast at Tiffany's Audrey Hepburn was still a little-known actress with few film roles to speak of; after it, she was one of the world's most famous fashion, style and screen icons. It was this film that matched her with Hubert de Givenchy's 'little black dress'.
Now, this little book tells the story of how it all happened: how Audrey got the role (for which at first she wasn't considered, and which she at first didn't want); how long it took to get the script right; how it made Blake Edwards' name as a director after too many trashy films had failed to; and how Henry Mancini's soundtrack with its memorable signature tune 'Moon River' completed the irresistible package.

This is the story of how one shy, uncertain, inexperienced young actress was persuaded to take on a role she at first thought too hard-edged and amoral -- and how it made Audrey Hepburn into gamine, elusive Holly Golightly in the little black dress -- and a star for the rest of her life.

Sam Wasson is also the author of a biography of Blake Edwards.
