Funny Face (1957) - dir. Stanley Donen
There is no reason to watch this film.
Oh… wait… Audrey Hepburn. That’s the only reason to watch this film.
Oh… wait… Fred Astaire. So, there’s only two reasons to watch this film.
But then there’s the jazz-dancing in the Parisian cafe. And the montage of teaching Jo (Hepburn) how to be a model. And the cinematography is surpisingly delicious. And then Dick (Astaire) sings the title song.
So there’s plenty of reasons to watch this film. It’s not the most compelling story in the world, but Audrey Hepburn is absolutely fantastic and dominates the screen with her presence.
I would add Kay Thompson and “Think Pink”!
