I HATED that movie. It was so...creepy. Maurice Chevalier particularly. Louis Jordan and Leslie were quite wonderful, but the odd storyline (raising a girl to be a high class prostitute) and Maurice singing about little girls becoming older girls delightfully ruined it for me.
Well, Gigi was one of my first 'watch it with granny' movies (after my granda died and we had to look after her because she was Alzheimer-ridden), so it means a lot to me, but I totally understand the whole creepy factor! I watched it a little while ago, after not watching it for a long time, and realised how disturbing that scene with Maurice Chevalier sort of longing after the little girls was! So yeah, I can understand that! But...I've known it for so long I can't help but love it!
