Script reveals Monroe skipped Breakfast at Tiffany's...
A script for the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany's that was given to Marilyn Monroe has emerged to reveal the blonde bombshell was first choice for the iconic role.
But in one of the worst moves in Hollywood history, Monroe's management team advised her to reject the part which famously went to Audrey Hepburn.
It became the defining role of Hepburn's career which also made her a fashion icon.
The script has emerged for sale for £7,000 at Julien's Auctions and is accompanied by a scathing 'report' by Monroe's manager Edward Parone, who described it as 'empty' and 'lacking warmth and importance'.
