Movie Classics: GiGi, 1958

"Bad table manners, GiGi have broken more households than infidelity."
"You look like an organ grinder's monkey!"
"It sometimes happens that rather than being married at once... we are married
at last."
[Gaston, do you make love all the time?] "Good heavens, no! The only people who make love all the time are liars."

I love this movie; it's so funny!Thoroughly recommended, naturally. It's set in turn of the century Paris, but made in the 50's, so the clothes are not entirely accurate (but nevertheless scrumptious!) and the music is cheesy, but also tongue-in-cheek. It's not your ordinary movie-musical; fast-forward through two of the songs and there's no reason for distaste. You'll love it!
