Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire find love and haute couture in Paris.
Dir Stanley Donen
With Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Kay Thompson, Michel Auclair
Jo Stockton (Hepburn) is ‘discovered’ in a book store and whisked off to Paris where she’s clad in Givenchy and taught to become a fashion model. There’s a deeply rewarding emotional charm about Funny Face that’s pure Donen, while Hepburn’s movie-musical debut is a revelation. But the film is almost stolen by the scenery-chewing Kay Thompson, with ‘Think Pink’ a strong candidate for the campest musical number ever.
