Visiting instructor in film studies Sam Wasson ’03 conducted a fascinating Q&A about Blake Edwards’ classic American film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which was shown on Sept. 28 at the Goldsmith Family Cinema as part of the ongoing Adaptation Series, a collaboration between the Friends of the Wesleyan Library and the Center for Film Studies which examines the translation of literary works to the screen.

Wasson is the author of The New York Times best seller Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Dawn of the American Woman, the first complete account of the making of the beloved movie based on a Truman Capote novella and starring Audrey Hepburn in her one of her most memorable roles. Wasson’s most recent book, Paul on Mazursky, was recently published by Wesleyan University Press.
