For All Ages
Fred Astaire’s inimitable dancing feet come full circle in George and Ira Gershwin’s Funny Face, an airy 1957 musical gambol about high-fashion photography in Paris that costars Audrey Hepburn. Paris (and Audrey) have rarely looked better thanks to Ray June’s luminous cinematography, and the classic score includes such songs as “S’Wonderful,” “He Loves and She Loves” and the title tune.
This is a musical that brought together two great stars, Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. Fred Astaire always made dancing look so easy and in this picture he makes it look true. Then add the famous impressionist dance piece that Audrey Hepburn does in this movie and it becomes a true classic. Filled with music, scenes of Paris, and of course romance, “Funny Face” one for all ages.The amazing thing is the models of today are so much different then what is portrayed in this movie of the 50s. The model did not have to be skinny as a rail and the outfits were actually something some one might wear. Dove awards this classic with the Dove Seal.
