Blake Edwards's 1961 film of Truman Capote's novel is one of his best-known efforts but far from his best—it's one of the few that he didn't write, and screenwriter George Axelrod has entirely too many opportunities to indulge his own rather sleazy sense of social satire. Still, this story of a party girl (Audrey Hepburn) in love with a gigolo (George Peppard) allows Edwards to create a very handsome film, with impeccable Technicolor photography by Franz Planer.
