Those familiar with the screen adaptation of Truman Capote's 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' know that Holly Golightly had quite the way with words -- "the mean reds," "gruesome Thursdays" -- but it turns out that may have had a lot more to do with Audrey Hepburn than you thought.
Cameron Crowe got his hands on a little bit of old Hollywood memorabilia, a note that the actress wrote to 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' composer Henry Mancini. (How? Why? Who cares!)
Can't you just see Hepburn putting down her ukulele or cigarette holder and deciding -- on a whim -- to write Mr. Mancini a letter?
"A movie without music is a little bit like an aeroplane without fuel. However beautifully the job is done, we are still on the ground -- to a world of reality," she wrote. "Your music has lifted us all up and sent us soaring."
Other reasons to be endeared by the beloved screen beauty: she wrote 'aeroplane' and called Mancini a hip cat.
Check out the full letter below, but be sure to bring your reading glasses.
