New York’s Gone Mad

AMC's Mad Men Takes New YorkThis week’s Mad Men mania perfectly coincides with Sammy Wasson’s book on Breakfast at Tiffany’s which I’m currently editing. I loved this:

“If there is one fact of life that Audrey Hepburn is dead certain of, adamant about, irrevocably committed to, it’s the fact that her married life, her husband and her baby, come first and far ahead of her career.

She said so the other day on the set of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the Jurow-Shepherd comedy for Paramount, in which she plays a New York play girl, café society type, whose constancy is highly suspect.

This unusual role for Miss Hepburn brought up the subject of career women vs. wives – and Audrey made it tersely clear that she is by no means living her part.”

- From Paramount Pictures publicity, released November 28th, 1960

Check out AMC’s website for details on the “New York’s Gone Mad” event calendar which includes a screening of ads form the 60s at the Museum and Arts Building, and various Mad Men inspired libations at hotel bars around town.

And don’t forget to Mad Men yourself!
