I’m not a fan of the poster but I do like the trailer for The Capote Tapes.
Truman Capote became famous for his writing with Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood. The fact that they were turned into very well received movies added to his fame. Breakfast at Tiffany’s was nominated for 5 Oscars and won two. In Cold Blood was nominated for four Oscars.
Although Capote would go on to write other shorts stories, novels and teleplays, he became best known for being famous. Capote was popular on the talk show circuit. He was flamboyant and loved telling stories. I look forward to seeing The Capote Tapes and someday pulling In Cold Blood off my to-be-read bookshelf and reading it.
In the 35 years since his death, Truman Capote has remained a source of curiosity to many. His works, including ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and ‘In Cold Blood’, have maintained their place in the literary canon of great twentieth century American literature and still appeal to readers across the globe today.
‘Answered Prayers’ was meant to be Truman Capote’s greatest masterpiece, an epic portrait of NYC’s glittering jet-set society. Instead, it sparked his downfall. Through never before heard audio archive and interviews with Capote’s friends and enemies, this intimate documentary reveals the rise and fall of one America’s most iconic writers.
