Orphan Lili Daurier joins a carnival and falls under the spell of its star a suave magician. But it is the show's crippled embittered puppeteer who truly loves Lili a love he can express only through his puppets. "It is not often that the word 'enchanting' can accurately be applied to a musical" Clive Hirschhorn wrote in The Hollywood Musical "but it was the best way to describe Lili as well as Leslie Caron's genuinely touching performance." Nominated for six Academy Awards-« Lili offers sentiment without sugar simplicity without banality and a lyrical heart that beats to an Oscar-«-winning Bronislau Kaper score highlighted by Hi-Lili Hi-Lo and an imaginative sequence of Caron dancing with her beloved puppets come to life. Mel Ferrer Jean Pierre Aumont Zsa Zsa Gabor Amanda Blake and Kurt Kasznar also star.
