Film information

Based on: The novel by Colette ('Gigi')

Story: Triple bill of high-stepping 1950s musicals. Director Vincente Minnelli and producer Arthur Freed capped the success of their earlier hits 'Meet Me in St Louis' and 'An American in Paris' with the lavish musical 'Gigi' (1958), an adaptation of Colette's famous novel. Gigi (Leslie Caron), an innocent French girl, finds herself being trained as a courtesan so that she can become the mistress of Gaston Lachaille (Louis Jourdan), a family friend and heir to a sugar fortune. However, when Gaston actually falls in love with the young Gigi he complicates a long-standing family tradition - and throws their whole social circle into a flap. The film won nine Oscars: Best Picture, Director, Cinematography, Editor, Set Design, Screenplay, Costumes, Score and Song. In 'An American in Paris' (1951), American GI Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) stays in Paris after the war to become a painter. There he falls in love with Lise Bouvier (Leslie Caron) - only to discover that she is engaged to his friend Henri Baurel (Georges Guetary). The film is accompanied by the music of George Gershwin, including 'I Got Rhythm' and 'Embraceable You'. Winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. 'High Society' (1956) is a musical remake of the play 'The Philadelphia Story'. Grace Kelly stars as socialite Tracy Lord who, even as she prepares for her second marriage, still has obvious feelings for her ex-husband (Bing Crosby). She also strikes up a friendship with a reporter (Frank Sinatra), who has been sent to cover her society wedding. The Cole Porter score includes 'Who Wants To Be a Millionaire' and the famous Crosby/Sinatra duet 'Well, Did You Evah'.
