BeKindRewind talks about the adaptive process of turning Breakfast at Tiffanys from Queer and Mildly Racist to Compulsory Het and WILDLY RACIST and how that affected both the casting process and how people think about the film now.

Full Disclosure:  I was definitely a college dorm room fan of Breakfast at Tiffany's without ever seeing the movie.

Have you every been mistaken about the plot or characters of an iconic movie you hadn't seen yet?  What are your favorite and least favorite adaptative changes?
