Tips of books

Hello darling!!

Tonight I’ll give you a simple tip of two books which I’m using in my monograph to conclude the graduation course in the university and I’ve already used one of them here, in the first posts…

And why I will talk about them? Because they are about classic cinema, of course!

The first one is about the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, its adaptation from novel to cinema, the movie backstages, some stories and a lot of interesting things about the movie. The book also talks about Audrey Hepburn’s career beginning until she starred this film as Holly Golightly. Another interesting theme in this book is how women were represented in the 50’s and 60’s in American cinema. Give a look in a photo of the book (in Brazilian version) and in some pictures which are inside it. All the informations about the book are after the photos (in the original version, in English).

Some pictures in the book

  • Original title: Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. – Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the dawn of the modern woman
  • Author: Sam Wasson
  • Year of publication: 2010
  • Publishing house: Harper

The second tip of book is a Marilyn Monroe’s biography. And I’m indicating this book because you should know that some of her biographies are quite sensationalists. But, reading this one (that a big fan of her, indicated to me), you can see all the stories and legends about this cultural icon treated in a way more serious and credible. Besides, you can realize how the big movie stars were built by Hollywood. Like the another book, the photos are in the Brazilian version of the book and the informations are after.
