Original Breakfast at Tiffany’s Script Sells for Big Bucks

We just can’t seem to get away from hot written ephemera auction news lately. Every time we turn around, we’re reporting that some new poem or book or manuscript has left the block in a shower of unprecedented dollars.

Our most recent entry comes from Amherst, Massachusetts where Truman Capote’s typed and corrected script for the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s recently sold in an online auction for $306,000.

According to Associated Press, “Capote’s handwritten notations include changing the femme fatale’s name from Connie Gustafson to the now-iconic Holly Golightly.”

It appears the manuscript was bought by a Russian billionaire “who plans to display it in Moscow and Monaco.”
