Audrey Hepburn was nominated for Best Actress for her career-defining role as the gamine-like free spirit Holly Golightly in Blake Edwards's 1961 adaptation of the Truman Capote novella. The haunting Henry Mancini song she sings and strums on her guitar, "Moon River," was the Oscar winner for Original Song (and was the Grammy "Song of the Year"). A 15-minute "Making Of" featurette in this Centennial Collection reveals that Capote envisioned Marilyn Monroe for the part, while the It's So Audrey! featurette celebrates Hepburn's status as a style icon. In the feature commentary, producer Richard Shepherd observes that he was "warned to be very careful and not do anything that might get the film an R rating." Other bonuses include a reunion gathering of extras from the raucous party sequence and a discussion with Asian-American actors of the racist casting and portrayal of the Yunioshi character (Mickey Rooney).

"Holly, a failed actress, meets with the appropriately Waspy Paul Varjak ... a fiction writer with a discreet 'arrangement' with an heiress, the impeccably coutured Patricia Neal. Peppard's Paul, as Holly's new neighbor, quickly becomes enmeshed in Miss Golightly's fizzy, effervescent life.... She lives modestly, but has a chic wardrobe, and is always glamorous on her evening jaunts. She flits from soiree to soiree, dines at '21', and imagines her beloved Tiffany's as an enchanted place where nothing bad ever happens ... Hepburn's mesmerizing, kittenish performance ... dominates every scene she's in."Pop Matters
