It's also Audrey Hepburn, also not one of her best-known - How to Steal a Million with Peter O'Toole.

My favorite Audrey movie (also my favorite old movie... and will-instantly-bring-a-smile-to-my-face movie) is Charade with Cary Grant.

(runner up: Cary Grant's Arsenic and Old Lace)

What's my favorite old movie? This one, this one! I love Funny Face.

This is up there with my faves, so gorgeous and silly. Actually anything with Fred Astaire makes me happy, even if he's probably 40 years older than Audrey:-)

There are so many great classic films but the one that always puts a smile on my face is 'His Girl Friday'. It is a pitch-perfect screwball comedy, with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell.

Thanks for this post! I love this film, it's one of my favorites. And it's been far too long since I've seen it. *Mental note.*

Funny Face is one of my tops. Made doubly awesome as the creator of the Eloise books plays Maggie Prescott (Ringa them bells...) my next two fave flicks are

Lover come Back*Doris Day & Rock Hudson
This one has the best clothing and the ever delightful Doris Day. Add a booze based candy and it's a topper!

What a Way to go*Shirley Maclaine, Gene Kelly, Paul Newman, Dick Van Dyke, Dean Martin and Robert Mitchum.

What a Way to Go is seriously one of my most, most favorite films ever. The costumes are divine, the humor is wicked and Shirley Maclaine is adorable as always.

Donalds Organic Texas Garden

One of my all time favs!

I love this movie. It's so beautiful. Did you know that Hubert Givenchy designed the costumes for Audrey himself?
Another 50's musical winner is Singing In The Rain. LOVE that movie.

I'll have to check this out, it sounds pretty entertaining! I doubt my hubby would be willing to sit down and watch it though! :)

I love the iconic album cover for Funny Face too!

anything audrey is a winner :) every film she made is sure to stand the test of time.

Hanna

I love this one too! The part where they're taking all the photos around Paris is sooo cute.

I love, love old movies. My list would be way too long. Since Funny Face is a musical. I have to chime in Summer Stock and The Pirate starring Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. Are two of my favorites that always makes me smile and feel good.

"What a Way to Go!" with Shirley MacLaine. It's about a women who wants to marry for love, not money, but keeps marrying poor, earnest men who become millionaires and die from fame/greed. No, it's actually really funny, even if it doesn't sound like it.

@ a.b. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I saw that movie years ago - loved it - and have not been able to remember the name of it for the life of me since then. (Writing it down now!)

I love everything Audrey, and Funny Face is no exception. Btw, I gained a much deeper seated appreciation for her and her work after reading a biography on her recently. I learned so much! If you love Audrey, I highly recommend picking up a biography or two from the library - you'll enjoy it. :)

Some of my (other) absolute favorites, though, would be State Fair, White Christmas and Harvey Girls off the top of my head. Those have been on repeat in my craftroom lately. The talent, the joy, the colors, the outfits - I can't get enough!!

I love that you love this movie! I love it too, mostly because it is SO insane in the best of ways. And the colors!--to die for.

Singing In the Rain! Amazing talent. Can't forget Holiday Inn too, I watch that every year.
