I like my demi-mondaines a little real and cruffy around the edges or I like them like Zola's Nana, entirely too OTT.

i reread the novella a couple years ago and was amazed how dislikeable holly was! which of course is the point -- in real life, ppl like holly are impossible to be friends with.

It does if you look past Hepburn's natural charm. I like her so much better in 'Roman Holiday'.

It just occurred to me that José Luis de Vilallonga is in both "Breakfast at Tiffany's' and 'Darling' - interesting comparing the two.

Having been to Rome a few times over the past 2 years, we watched RHol recently.

The scene where they're driving crazy through town on scooters, I keep expecting them to crash into all the market barrows selling Audrey Hepburn souvenirs!

six months pass...

so there's a stage adap opening on Broadway in March; faithful to Capote, ie, set during WW2 and presumably FRED IS GAY.
