A turn-of-the-century Parisian schoolgirl is trained to become a courtesan, as previous generations in her family had always done. When it becomes apparent that longtime family friend and international playboy Gaston Lachaille has taken an interest in young her, Gigi shocks everyone by declining his advances. Sophisticated and witty musical comedy, on the whole delightful. Won 9 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Adaptation, and Best Score. Entered 1991 into the National Film Registry. Colette's novel was previously adapted in a French film, Gigi (1949).
