Breakfast at Tiffany’s
The Canon #86 July 18, 2016
After last week’s PTA double-hitter, Devin and Amy are back to talk about the classic film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” They discuss the fortuitous casting of Audrey Hepburn in lieu of Marilyn Monroe, director Blake Edward’s skill at candy coating darker themes, and what role the movie played in the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Later, they theorize about how Truman Capote might react to the movie’s fanbase and inspect the questionable inclusion of a racist caricature in the film.
