Gigi movie Customer Reviews
||Stellar film, just slightly less than stellar package|
Amazingly (for a fan of musicals), I'd never seen "Gigi" until December 2004! While the story is a bit odd (though it makes sense if you know the background that was not clearly stated due to film censorship in the 1950s), the music is stellar and the photography is beautiful. Some fun performances from Leslie Caron, Louis Jourdan, Hermione Gingold and especially Maurice Chevalier makes it a joy to watch. Had there been a commentary and some documentary material, I would have given it SIX stars! No such luck; you'll just have to enjoy what "That's Entertainment" described as the last of the great MGM musicals.

||Wonderful Mother/Daughter movie to view|
Back in the early 60's My mom took me to my first movie that wasn't a Disneymovie. It was so memorable.
