Make no mistakes, I think "Gigi" is a fantastic film, as well.Not a fan of this film really. It just never grabbed me, for whatever reason. But I’m thrilled to hear about the restoration. I will be buying the blu-ray day one to support Warners for their efforts. Perhaps in this new HD release it will finally carry me away the way it does so many others.
And for what it’s worth, I love Gigi, especially the title tune! And who knows? Maybe soon there’ll be a push-back against the PC push-back and people will say we shouldn’t engage in “courtesan shaming.”
And despite my previous lampooning of the "Gigi" title tune, itself, I certainly have no interests in talking others into disliking any aspect(s) of something they do love. As I often say, if one loves a film in its entirety, then the other party should let one continue on within the happiness that each and every film provides. And this, my friends, is part of the glory of film.
P.S. to WAC: Please restore "Gigi".
