Regarding Wick’s Review
CHECK. I wasn’t speaking to the script, my friend. Merely noting the absence of your observation of the fact that in addition to the establishment of the now-standard “little black dress”, Audrey brought a sexual validity to those women who were less endowed than the “deply and importantly talented” Miss Beverly Hills. (Good Drag name, no?) That observation in the film belongs solely to Truman. Hepburn’s breasts, on the other hand, are all her own. “There’s such a lot of world to see” indeed, my Huckleberry friend!

Regarding Wick’s Review
Thanks. As to anti-boobaliciousness, recall that Audrey was referring to Miss Beverly Hills with the crack about being “deeply and importantly talented.”

Regarding Wick’s Review
Once again, a proper job on this review. It is at once brilliant and almost exceedingly florid, pinning this film as the iconic stalwart that it has become. This portrait of (for its time) a semi-futuristic slice of Manhattan life might be “little more that a short story”, but many a short story has made for a jewel such as this. (ie: STAND BY ME) This surely is no exception.
As for the “Little Genius”, it’s sad that Capote paid more attention to promoting his oddball persona than focusing on the production of quality, quantitative literature. Nonetheless, words like his don’t just fall onto the page.
My only surprise in this review is that you neglected mentioning that Hepburn, (with a little help from Givenchy), defied the boobalicious image of the ideal female form, elevating the smaller-breasted woman to the cover of Vogue; that figure eventually becoming De Regeur and opening doors for the likes of Mia Farrow.
Marvelous review. A gem of a GEM.
