Gigi (1958)

Weary of the conventions of Parisian society, a rich playboy and a youthful courtesan-in-training enjoy a platonic friendship, but it may not stay platonic for long.

In all departments a top-notch and lively musical production that is a delight to watch, but the plot itself hardly hold's one interest.

Halliwell***: "Laundered and musicalized version; delightfully set, costumed and performed, but oddly lacking dance numbers."

Maltin****: "Joyous turn-of-the-20th-century musical...Exquisitely filmed, perfectly cast..."
