Happy Birthday, Truman Capote

In honor of what would have been Truman Capote‘s 85th birthday (he died in 1984), here are a couple of video interviews from 1966, as he talks about working on In Cold Blood.

In this video he tries to explain what he means by “non-fiction novel.”

In this video he talks about what it was like to arrive in Kansas.

As an extra — and extra-weird — treat, try viewing this roast of Capote from Las Vegas, with host Dean Martin. It’s crazy.
