Product Description

Product Description

Leslie Caron, Maurice Chevalier, Louis Jourdan. Can you believe it's been 50 years since this delightful, multi-Oscar-winning musical debuted in picture houses across the country? And yet the romance in this coming-of-age story is just as exuberant as it was back then.

Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's 1958 direct-to-screen follow-up to their My Fair Lady was--miraculously--every bit as memorable as that stage smash. Set in fin-de-siècle Paris and based on a Colette story, Gigi also is about a girl (Leslie Caron) on a lower rung of society who blossoms into Cinderellahood before our eyes and ears. Thank heaven for Hermione Gingold and Maurice Chevalier as her mentors, and Louis Jourdan as her prince. The screenplay writer and lyricist Lerner always said that Gigi's title song was his favorite of all he'd written, and it's easy to see why--"Gigi" is a transcendent anthem to being transformed by love from an unexpected source. The entire score, including "Say a Prayer" (which had been cut from My Fair Lady), "I Remember It Well," "The Night They Invented Champagne," and "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," comprise a sparkling, rare soundtrack recording that stands alone and can be enjoyed and understood by those who have not yet seen the movie, deprived souls that they are. The winner of nine Academy Awards® (plus a special Oscar® for Chevalier), including Best Picture, Gigi was the last great MGM movie musical and one of the best. --Robert Windeler

Gigi is a lavish, big time production with great music,costumes, scenery, and direction.
I first saw this movie as a youth. In Louis Jordan's words 'it was a bore'. I ,however, appreciate this movie much more today although I still find it a little tedious at times. Overall, it is a very engaging and entertaining piece of work - especially the songs many of which are very charming. The casting was simply excellent. Leslie Caron made a perfect Gigi, who is depicted as an unrefined teenage brat. The real star in this movie is Louis Jordan, as Gaston, who has far more screen time than Caron. Maurice Chavalier is also excellent.
Despite possessing wealth, fame and many women in his time, Gaston is bored with his existence. When he is with Gigi, he escapes from his boredom. Gigi brings real joy in his life. Little does he realize until the end of the movie that he is in love with her and does the unthinkable by asking her to marry him.

Format: DVD
This enchanting 1958 musical remake of the 1948 French Film of the same name has finally been released as it should onto DVD and it is a marvel to see.In fact this two disc set also INCLUDES the aforementioned 1948 b&w full screen film which compares quite favourably to its' musical sister.
Let's start with the 1948 82 1/2 minute version.
Based on a short story(novella)written by French writer Collette during WW2,this film tells the tale of one Gilberte or Gigi who is being raised by her Grandmother Mamita(Yvonne De Bray)with much input from her Aunt Alicia(Gaby Morlay).Her own mother is a "working" stage performer who hasn't the time or seeming inclination to raise Gigi herself(you only hear the mother periodcially off camera singing).The film opens at the Eiffel Tower as we see an old Lothario by the name of Honore'(Jean Tissier)escorting a girl probably a good third his age to the restaurant there.We also meet his nephew Gaston(Frank Villaird) who is quite well to do(he works in the sugar business) and a chip off his old uncle in the romance department.Gaston is young and bored with his life but often gets some pleasant diversion from visiting Mamita and Gigi for some good food and card playing with Gigi(she usually wins).Gigi is a typical 16 year old who carries all the habits and the lack of maturity of a girl that age but is brought up with the sage advice of her grandmother combined with regular visits to her Aunt Alicia,who imparts proper manners and the deportment society expects.
Gaston meanwhile carries on his playboy lifestyle for all of societal Paris to see;something expected of everyone of his stature.You see this Paris at the turn of the century is full of romantic intrigues,trysts and adultery.

I think that GIGI is the best musical ever. I just love Aunt Alicia and her sister. Hermoine Gingold is fabulous. This movie takes you into a world that you don't want to come out of. If only they would make more movies like this today. My grandaughter absolutely adores it. I want to watch Gigi over and over and does not want it to end. I get lost in the movie and wish I could stay there forever. It is absolutely fantastic.!!!!! More young people should be able to see this movie. Whomever have not seen this movie they are missing out on life itself. Julia Reid

Okay, "Singing in the Rain" is more loveable. "The Bandwagon" is stuffed even more with great goodies. But "Gigi" is third in the list of the great ones. Now, don't get me wrong - Leslie Caron is a delight as Gigi. Hermione Gingold is a sheer joy. Chevalier is Chevalier - take him or leave him. But Louis Jourdan's Gaston is a masterpiece. The title song is one of the highlights of movie musicals and even a Sinatra would have butchered it, as would any other fabulous and talented singer already established. Apparently Minelli put Jourdan through hell to get the number, but what a number it is.

And then 20th Century Fox had the gall to waste it all but by making Jourdan a stooge for Sinatra in "Can-Can", a movie the less mentioned, the better.

So if you want a solid plot, only slightly like "My Fair Lady", gorgeous scenery, and performances that anchor the movie half in the real world and half in fantasy, and Louis Jourdan doing the near-impossible, stealing a movie from a gathering of experts, buy "Gigi" and fall in love with her so that you, too, at the end, can murmur "thank heavens" with Hermione.
