Gigi

 

Celebrate the most romantic day of the year watching one of the most romantic movies ever made. Belmont World Film and Bright Lights at Emerson College are pleased to present a FREE screening of the classic 1958 MGM musical set in the most romantic city in the world: Paris!

Winner of nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, this sumptuous musical stars Leslie Caron as a precocious Parisian girl groomed to be a kept woman, who comes to realize she'd rather marry for love instead. Laced with some of Lerner and Loewe's finest songs ("Thank Heaven for Little Girls," "The Night They Invented Champagne,") and considered to be the last great MGM musical, this luxurious production crowned the career of acclaimed director Vincente Minnelli.

 

The film will be introduced by Mark Griffin, author of A Hundred or More Hidden Things: The Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli (Da Capo Press). Before the main feature, he will screen a compilation of clips from some of Minnelli's other movies, such as Meet Me in St. Louis, An American in Paris, and Brigadoon.
