Summary
In addition to examining screenplays by American writer Truman Capote and film adaptations of his writing, this work also features a biographical element, exploring Capote?s life in the world of Hollywood celebrities and his successes and failures in the film industry. Of special interest are chapters devoted to Capote?s Southern childhood, his abandoned and unproduced projects, and both parodic and iconic portrayals of Capote on film. Films discussed include In Cold Blood, Breakfast at Tiffany?s, Beat the Devil, The Innocents, Indiscretion of an American Wife, Laura, A Christmas Memory, The Thanksgiving Visitor, and One Christmas. The book contains a wealth of b&w film stills. Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
