This is a great musical starring, among others, Leslie Caron and Maurice Chevalier. If you are a fan of musicals, don't miss out on this one, which won nine Academy awards (impressive).

The songs are fun, the acting is good...and the story is well written---while not quite believable, the story is more like a fairy tale.

Leslie Caron, as Gigi, goes from young school g... read more

The 1950s began and ended with Vincente Minnelli films triumphant at the Academy Awards. An American in Paris won for Best Picture, even if Minnelli was overlooked that year, and launched the acting career of star Leslie Caron.

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of musicals and it must be one of the few movie genres I enjoy the least but, still, I try to keep an open mind and I watch from time to time one of the classics in this genre. This time, I picked up a winner of the Best Picture Academy award directed by Vincent Minnelli, one of the masters in this genre so I thought it should be really good.

Description: Amazon.com essential video Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's 1958 direct-to-screen follow-up to their My Fair Lady was--miraculously--every bit as memorable as that stage smash. Set in fin-de-siècle Paris and based on a Colette story, Gigi also is about a girl (Leslie Caron) on a lower rung of society who blossoms into Cinderellahood before our eyes and ears. Thank heaven for Hermione Gingold and Maurice Chevalier as her mentors, and Louis Jourdan as her prince. The screenplay writer and lyricist Lerner always said that Gigi's title song was his favorite of all he'd written, and it's easy to see why--"Gigi" is a ... (more)

Gigi

“The 1950s began and ended with Vincente Minnelli films triumphant at the Academy Awards. An American in Paris won for Best Picture, even if Minnelli was overlooked that year, and launched the acting career of star Leslie Caron. Several year later they reunited for Gigi, the musical adaptation of the Colette novella, and went on to sweep the Oscars.   Gigi feels like a celebration of the individual film’s achievements and more like a career achievement award in disguise. This one is uneven, an overstuffed pastry that makes one wonder why it won it all. It wasn’t like it was a slow year as The Defiant Ones, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Some Came Running, Auntie Mame, and The Big Country were all in contention at the ceremony.   There’s plenty to work with in the material, to be sure.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2019 (36 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 55min. First Viewing Gigi has, to put it mildly, not aged well. Sure, it's a sumptuously mounted production, with gorgeous costume and production design and beautifully vivid cinematography, but it's story is, at best, tone deaf, and at worst creepy as all hell ("Thank Heaven for Little Girls", despite being an earworm, was too weird for me to fully stomach). It also lacks the essential ingredients needed to make a great musical romance; energy, wit and, most importantly, heart. While"
