Perry and Richard are hanged and Truman Capote is at their execution. After they are hanged, Capote talks with his friend Harper Lee and he mentions that witnessing the execution was an intense experience and that he wishes he could've done more to help the two convicts; Harper says "But you didn't want to do anything else to help them." The movie ends with Capote taking a look at Perry's diary and a sketch he drew of Capote. After the death of the two convicts, Capote finishes writing his novel In Cold Blood and it's a success. Truman Capote died in 1984 of complications due to alcoholism.

Truman Capote: It's as if Perry and I grew up in the same house and one day he stood up and went out the back door while I went out the front.



Halfway into the film, a scene shows Capote talking on a beige telephone. The receiver is a modular (plug in) type. Modular phones were not introduced until after 1966. The time frame for this movie is 1959 through 1963. All other scenes in this movie show the correct type of receiver (wired, not plug-in).
