Truman Capote, the author of the original book, hated Hepburn in the role and said he had wanted Monroe to do it. I've read the book and don't think either one of them really fits the role. I would have cast Jean Seaberg.

I think 'Orangey' the cat played the best part. Hepburn was made out of cardboard. Monroe would have been better just playing herself.

Could they seriously have ditched Mickey Rooney or his atrociously bad portrayal of a goofy Japanese character?
At least George Pepoard later headed The A-Team with Mr. T. Much better casting.
