Photo booth pictures of Truman Capote, Audrey Hepburn, and Mel Ferrer, c. 1956.
"Marilyn [Monroe] was my first choice to play Holly Golightly. I thought she would be perfect. Holly had to have something touching about her…unfinished. [But] Paramount double-crossed me in every way and cast Audrey." - Truman Capote
Personal note: Capote: A Biography by Gerald Clarke is the biography that made me a fan of biographies.
Hello! Would you be so kind as to tell me where you source your photos? :) And another question I have, do you know if it is true or untrue that in or around 1948 when Audrey moved to London to study ballet, she also worked doing modelling work? if it is true what age would she have been at that time, and do you know of any photos from this time? :)
It is true! She took lessons from Sonia Gaskell, a well known dutch instructor. She moved to study at the Ballet Rambert; supporting herself with part-time work as a model. She was born in 1929 so she would have been about 19 years old at that time. Here are some photos:
