Moon River was made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, in which she played the part of New York socialite Holly Golightly. But Hepburn was not a trained singer and initially Paramount film-makers thought they would need to dub somebody else’s voice.

Robert Wright wrote in The Atlantic Monthly, “This is a love sung [sic] to wanderlust. Or a romantic song in which the romantic partner is the idea of romance.” An inlet near Savannah, Georgia , Johnny Mercer’s hometown, was named Moon River in honor of him and this song.
Moon River is a real river in Savannah, Georgia, where Mercer grew up. At the time, the river was known as The Back River , but was renamed Moon River in honor of the song, and Johnny Mercer’s home along the river became known as the Moon River House. >>

Breakfast at Tiffany’s was a musical with music and lyrics by Bob Merrill and a book originally by Abe Burrows but rewritten during pre-Broadway tryouts by Edward Albee. It is based on the 1958 Truman Capote novella and 1961 film of the same name about a free spirit named Holly Golightly.
And it is here, at the ending , where the book and the movie differ. In the film, the cat is found and Holly’s revelation is met by a passionate kiss from Paul, the man who has always loved her, who she can finally love back, now that she understands what love and commitment are.
By Truman Capote It’s the belief that only good things happen there that makes Tiffany’s so appealing to her. So why choose this as the title? The title draws attention to Holly without having to name her specifically – she’s the only one in the book who loves the store so much.
