Gigi. My second favorite movie of all time. For me, Maurice Chevalier walks away with the picture. Love Honoré Lachaille's observations throughout but especially love his rendition of "I'm Glad I'm Not Young Anymore" and his duet with Hermione Gingold, "I Remember It Well." *sigh*
Aunt Alicia: Love, my dear Gigi, is a thing of beauty like a work of art, and like a work of art it is created by artists. The greater the artist the greater the art. And what makes an artist? Gigi: Cigars and jewelry? Aunt Alicia: Gigi, you're from another planet.
The final "courtesan" dress in Gigi is just spectacular. It's way too simplistic for the era, but it fits the character, which is more important, in the end. Plus, I adore the half moon hair pin (which you unfortunately can't see in this publicity photo).
