Holly and Anzacs – “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” – Truman Capote

January 31st, 2011 · No Comments · Australian, WW2

On the way home I noticed a cab-driver crowd gathered in front of P. J. Clark’s saloon, apparently attracted there by a happy group of whiskey-eyed Australian army officers baritoning, “Waltzing Matilda.” As they sang they took turns spin-dancing a girl over the cobbles under the El; and the girl, Miss Golightly, to be sure, floated round in their, arms light as a scarf.

Of COURSE Holly Golightly would dance in the street with ANZACs!
