“Dear Henry,

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture Bazaar -

I have just seen our picture—Break­fast at Tif­fany’s—this time with your score. A movie without mu­sic is a lit­tle bit like an aero­plane without fuel. How­ever beau­ti­fully the job is done, we are still on the ground and in a world of re­al­ity. Your mu­sic has lifted us all up and sent us soar­ing. Ev­ery­thing we can­not say with words or show with ac­tion you have ex­pressed for us. You have done this with so much imag­i­na­tion, fun and beauty. You are the hippest of cats— and the most sen­si­tive of com­posers! Thank you, dear Hank. Lots of love, Audrey.” – tran­scribed from Audrey Hep­burn’s hand­writ­ten note to Henry Mancini in 1961
