Rating: 4.0/5.0

Truman Streckfus Persons was born in New Orleans, later taking his stepfather’s last name, and arrived in New York City in 1943 at age 19. His first novel “Other Voices Other Rooms” was published in 1948, and became the first mainstream American best seller that had a plot and characters that were openly gay, just like the author. Of course, he went on to write the classics “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “In Cold Blood,” while maintaining his swishy reputation as a persona on talk and game shows. The film explores it all, including audio interviews associated with a biography of Truman by George Plimpton.

“The Capote Tapes” has a limited release in theaters on September 17th. See local listings for theaters and showtimes. Written by Ebs Burnough and Holly Whiston. Directed by Ebs Burnough. Not Rated.
