Audrey Hepburn starred as New York call girl Holly Golightly in Blake Edwards's Breakfast at Tiffany's , a film based on the Truman Capote novella.

Capote disapproved of many changes that were made to sanitise the story for the film adaptation, and would have preferred Marilyn Monroe to have been cast in the role, although he also stated that Hepburn did a terrific job.

I'm an introvert. Playing the extroverted girl was the hardest thing I ever did.

Holly Golightly

The Holly Golightly character is considered one of the best-known in American cinema, and a defining role for Hepburn. The Givenchy-designed dress she wears during the opening credits is considered an icon of the twentieth century and perhaps the most famous little black dress of all time. Hepburn stated that the role was the jazziest of her career.

Cinema, short for cinematography, is often used to refer to the industry of films and filmmaking or to the art of filmmaking itself. The contemporary definition of cinema is the art of simulating experiences to communicate ideas, stories, perceptions, feelings, beauty or atmosphere.
