5.0 out of 5 stars Fashion and Fancy April 22 2003
Here we have a story of fashion and romance. Givenchy provides the fashionable clothes. George and Ira Gershwin provide the music to set the scene for romance. Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire provide the romantic intrigue, costarring Kay Thompson for added comic relief. The story takes place in New York City and in Paris on the Seine River in France. These choice ingredients mix well to give the viewer an inviting slice of life in the fashion world, seen as songs, dances and splendid fashion shows. There is even a spoof of French philosophy. With excellent timing and camera work, and the consultancy of Richard Avedon, this film and its story present a happy moment to be revisited by an engaged film fan. Director Stanley Donen has made it happen with a screenplay by Leonard Gershe, and choreography by Eugene Loring and Fred Astaire.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Fashion Musical! June 14 2004
Anyone who loves Breakfast at Tiffany's and Roman Holiday knows that Audrey Hepburn is one of the most magical women ever captured on film. But there is something special about Funny Face. It captured a part of the real Audrey -- part book worm, part great dancer, part reluctant star. The "On How to be Lovely" scene with Patricia Neal is one of the most glorious moments in film. You just cannot help but smile when they start singing that song. It will make you fall in love with Audrey over and over again!

Audrey Hepburn had a unique quality that she could sing(yes,sing)dance and act.She has a most touching scene where she is a bookstore librarian that is very distraught after having the bookstore she works for turned upside down.She sings an old Gershwin tune "How long has been going on" which coming from Audrey,is from her heart and soul. She then dances two numbers with Fred Astaire with sheer perfection. Words cannot describe what a beautiful actress she was-Audrey,you were truly amazing and lovely to look at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Face [1956] [Blu-ray] [UK Release] July 29 2014
By Andrew C. Miller TOP 500 REVIEWER
Funny Face [1956] [Blu-ray] [UK Release] S’WONDEFUL, S’MARVELOUS!

In the Academy Award® nominated classic, Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire join forces in lending their song and dance talents to the timeless and classic film musical. When fashion magazine mogul Maggie Prescott [Kay Thompson] and her head photographer Dick Avery [Fred Astaire] (based on real-life cameraman Richard Avedon was both a visual consultant on Funny Face) scout out a bookstore for their next photo shoot. Dick discovers the unique face of bookseller and amateur philosopher Jo Stockton [Audrey Hepburn] and is soon whisked off to Paris. Jo is soon transformed into a global supermodel . . . and finds herself falling for the photographer, who first noticed her sunny, funny face.

FILM FACT: The National Board of Review gave the film Special Citation award for the photographic innovations. Leonard Gershe was nominated for "Best Written American Musical" by the Writers Guild of America. Stanley Donen was nominated by the Directors Guild of America for "Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures" and for a "Golden Palm" at the 1957 Cannes Film Festival. Fred Astaire received a Golden Laurel nomination for "Top Male Musical Performance". The film received four Academy Award "Oscar" nominations: Leonard Gershe for "Best Writing, Story and Screenplay - Written Directly for the Screen"; Edith Head and Hubert de Givenchy (Hepburn's costume designer) for "Best Costume Design"; Ray June for "Best Cinematography"; and Hal Pereira, George W. Davis, Sam Comer, and Ray Moyer for "Best Art Direction-Set Decoration".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Troumph for all Concerned Oct. 7 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the very best of the Audrey Hepburn-as-Cinderella movies. For one thing she is in her prime as a beauty and is still in shape for dancing. Her sophisticated charm meshes well with the worldliness of Astaire who plays the stand-in for production designer Richard Avedon. Shot on locations all over Paris and environs the film bubbles with American pep. It is a satire on the fashion magazine as well as on existentialism. It never falters or loses the right tone. All this must be put down to Stanley Donen, whose movies show him as witty and inventive. The songs are standards, the glimpses of Paris in 1956 are mouth watering, and this digital remastering is about as good as it gets short of an original VistaVision print. Many of the great MGM musicals came out of the collaborations of the Freed Unit. Donen, a graduate of that unit, singlehandedly transplants all of its dazzling skills to this movie, made under the auspices of Paramount and partially shot in France. A source of inexhaustible pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars For worlds I'd not replace... Oct. 9 2008
Audrey Hepburn as a dowdy, shy little bookworm obsessed with philosophy to the point of excluding all else? Say it's not so.

But such is the legendary actress' role at the start of "Funny Face," an endearingly frothy little musical that spends equal time exploring the nightlife of 1950s Paris and a sparkly, sunny version of the fashion industry. Hepburn and Fred Astaire are the ones who really make the story shine, with plenty of song-and-dance numbers and a quirky, slightly sardonic little romance. It's never a deep story, but it's always a charming one.

Dissatisfied with the latest edition of Quality fashion magazine, publisher/editor Maggie Prescott (Kay Thompson) decides to splash the world with the Next Big Trend: think pink. Cue musical number.

She also decides to add an intellectual bent to the fashion world ("Marion, dear, what are you reading?" "Minute Men from Mars!"), and temporarily takes over a boho bookstore for a suitable backdrop, much to the dismay of the owner Jo (Hepburn). Photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) is struck by Jo's earnestness and unique "funny face," and convinces Maggie to make her their new star model -- supposedly a woman who embodies intellect as well as chic fashion.

Jo doesn't like fashion ("It is chichi, and an unrealistic approach to self-impressions as well as economics!") agrees because she wants to meet her favorite philosopher in Paris, and immerse herself into the bohemian nightlife. But she's slowly growing to love her modeling career -- and Dick as well. But when Jo encounters the eminent Professor Flostre, her budding relationship with Dick is disrupted -- can fashion and philosophy find true love, or are their differences too much?

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting, not funny face.
Well, funny isn't how I'd describe Audrey Hepburn's face. Dazzling, luminescent, one-of-a-kind... but funny? I'm not laughing. Read more
