Hi All -

Here are Fred Astaire and the gamin Audrey Hepburn performing a dance duet from Funny Face. Although Hepburn was not known as a dancer,  her aura of elegance and class shines through in this graceful and romantic sequence. (Also not known as a singer, but as Holly Golightly sitting on the fire escape with a guitar and a towel wrapped around her head, introduced the world to the wonderful Mancini and Mercer tune, “Moon River”)

FUNNY FACE directed by Stanley Donen (1957 103 min.)
