Includes Discussion, Reception & Book Signing

Guest Speaker: SAM WASSON, author of the new book
Fifth Avenue, 5 AM: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffanyâs,
and the Dawn of the Modern Woman

Nominated for 5 Academy Awards

Images from Breakfast at Tiffanyâs are branded into our collective memory: we can see Audrey Hepburn stepping out of that cab on the corner of 57th and 5th, and picture her again with George Peppard, wrapped in a kiss as the rain pours around them. Behind those iconic images is the incredible journey of what it took to transform Truman Capoteâs âunfilmableâ novella into a motion picture classic. Following the film, author Sam Wasson will reveal little known facts about Breakfast at Tiffanyâs (including how Truman Capote desperately wanted Marilyn Monroe for the leading role, and how Hepburn herself felt very conflicted about balancing her role as Holly Golightly with her real-life role as a mother) and immerse us in the America of the late fifties before Woodstock and birth control, when a not-so-virginal girl raised eyebrows across the country, changing fashion, film, and sex, for good.
USA, 1961, 115 min.

Sam Wasson was born in Los Angeles but left the city to study film at Wesleyan University, and then went on to do a Masters in Film at USC. His books, A Splurch in the Kisser: The Movies of Blake Edwards and the forthcoming Paul on Mazursky, offer definitive studies of each directorâs life and work. He calls L.A. home again, though L.A. rarely returns his calls.
