Elegance is the word that comes to mind when I think of Audrey Hepburn. In the film ‘Funny Face,’ which I watched on TCM the other day, she co-stars with another icon of the industry Fred Astaire.
Watching it, I could only think that we need more movies that entertain us. There are only a few I can think of but won’t mention them here.
Audrey’s elegant but funny face gets her into a situation she wasn’t anticipating, becoming a model. She agrees after listening to Fred’s character’s telling her she can reach her goal of going to Paris.
If you didn’t know, this is a love story with all the conflicts, or the learning one goes through in courtship. The movie ends with all musical love stories of that era – the 40s and 50s.
The music is enticing and the dancing Fred Astaire’s best. Audrey keeps up. They dance off into the moonlight.
It was a real treat for a dreary afternoon. Amazon: http://amzn.to/1O8qTrn
