You guess? Don't you know?

We've got a two-part question for you this time, as last week's trivia champion Amelia Lucia answered not one but two questions concerning 1940's The Philadelphia Story. This week we'll focus on a film that marks the signature collaboration of three of Hollywood's most eminent figures during the 1960's - director Blake Edwards, composer Henry Mancini, and gorgeous actress Audrey Hepburn - yes, it's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Let's see how much you know about this 1961 classic cinema confection.

1.Holly Golightly's (Audrey Hepburn's) neighbor Paul Varjak (George Peppard) has one published book to his credit, a compilation of short stories that he gives her as a housewarming gift. What is its title?
2. Paul quotes a newspaper review of his book to Holly, complete with the month, day and year it was published: " said the New York Times book review, ________." According to his quote, what is the exact date?

Update: Wow, talk about a record here....less than three hours after I posted this doozy, fellow blogger Tillerman bowls over the Classic Film Trivia with two concise, and correct, answers: Paul's book, Nine Lives, was reviewed in the New York Times on October 1, 1956.
Congratulations to Tillerman for posting correctly, and first!
I think Paul and Holly are chatting about his incredible film knowledge in the photo above.
