Gigi Movie Review


Why doesn't Gigi disturb more people?

The premise: a wealthy Parisian (Louis Jourdan) is training a young girl (Leslie Caron) to be his mistress. He and his ribald uncle (Maurice Chevalier) even sing songs like "Thank Heaven for Little Girls." It's a musical about pedophilia -- and this is one of Hollywood's most glorified song-and-dance films. Even more bizarre is that Caron was 27 when she was tapped to play young Gigi. She looks like she's about 16.

I suppose people get caught up in the famous songs like "Ah Yes, I Remember It Well," the colorful location photography of Gay Paree, and zee out-RAY-juss Frahnch accents. Sad to say, Gigi is all style, and zilch in the way of substance.
