really liked it

I must preface this review with a common refrain - I love Audrey. So much so that I christened my rabbit with Audrey's surname. When I first watched BaT when I was a kid, I didn't understand what exactly Holly's profession was nor why Paul/Fred was living separately from his gal pal. Maybe it's because I was a completely naive kid, but i think it shows how George Axelrod succeeded in taming the situation. Of course,the movie wasnt aimed at young ones of my age bracket, but there you go. I enjoyed this book very much. I just don't realize how many people it takes to make a film, especially in the heavily censored fifties and sixties. I have to say, my favorite part was reading about the party scene and its choreography. I love the girl who is laughing in the mirror and the next, she's crying and the guy with the eye patch. Classic!
