Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the thirty-first Best Picture Winner: “Gigi.”
“Gigi” follows Gaston, a restless Parisian playboy who moves from one mistress to another, while also spending time with Gigi, a precocious younger friend learning the ways of high society. The platonic relationship between Gaston and Gigi changes, however, when she matures, but the possibility of something lasting seems unlikely since he won’t commit to one woman. Gigi refuses to be anyone’s mistress, however, and Gaston must choose between her and his carefree lifestyle. Directed by Vincente Minnelli, the film stars Leslie Caron as Gigi, Louis Jourdan as Gaston Lachaille, Maurice Chevalier as Honoré Lachaille, Hermione Gingold as Madame Alvarez, and Eva Gabor as Liane d’Exelmans.
