Funny Face' DVD, Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire (1957), New & Sealed
Paris, the City of Light, shines even brighter when Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire team up for the only time and bring their luminous starpower to this exquisite musical featuring songs by George and Ira Gershwin. This dazzing romp -- filmed on location in Paris -- garnered four Academy Award ? nominations.
In the role of bookstore clerk transformed into a modeling sensation, Hepburn showcases singing and dancing skills she had honed on the London stage, performing 'How Long Has This Been Going On ?', a 'Basal Metabolism' dance in a cool-cat bistro and more. Astaire, as the fashion photographer who discovers her, conjures up his inimitable magic for sequences that include his 'Let's Kiss And Make Up' matador diversion, a heavenly dance with Hepburn to 'He Loves And She Loves' and, again with Hepburn, the title-tune enchantment, 'I Love Your Funny Face.' Now and forever, so do we.
