    What better way to welcome Valentine's Day and Oscar season than with one of the most romantic Oscar-winning movies ever made ?

    Gigi (MGM, 1958), 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. Gigi will be introduced by Emerson graduate Mark Griffin, author of A Hundred or More Hidden Things: The Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli (Da Capo Press). Before the main feature, Griffin will screen a compilation of clips from some of Minnelli's other movies including Meet Me In St. Louis, An American in Paris and The Band Wagon.
