Funny Face

(1957, 103 mins, Blu-ray Disc)
CAST Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Kay Thompson
Classification:

Make a Valentine’s Day date with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire in one of the most delightful Hollywood musicals of the Golden Age. A romantic comedy with songs by George and Ira Gershwin, Funny Face is a delectable satire on the then-nascent fashion industry, with a remarkable comic turn from Kay Thompson as a Diana Vreeland-type editor for Quality magazine.

Astaire plays Dick Avery, a fashion photographer based on Richard Avedon, but it’s Hepburn’s model - blooming in bohemian Paris - who everybody falls in love with.

The director is Stanley Donen, who made Singin in the Rain, and the tunes include Think Pink, How Long Has This Been Going On and S’Wonderful.
