Capote, who sold the film rights of his novella to Paramount Studios, wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly Golightly, whom he had described perfectly in the book.
When Lee Strasberg advised Monroe that playing a "lady of the evening" would be bad for her image, she turned it down and performed in The Misfits instead.
Real champagne, gallons of soft drinks, 60 cartons of cigarettes, hot dogs, cold cuts, chips, dips, and sandwiches were involved. They hired me to do this overboard, and we had fun doing it And it came to me. Perhaps it was that desire for fame that ultimately destroyed Capote.

George Axelrod who wrote The Seven Year Itch and The Manchurian Candidate took over and lost the unhappy, unresolved ending and put in more Paul sex scenes which he had no intent on keeping.
