Moving on to another magazine project, Maggie wants to find the perfect spot to photograph one of the magazine's models named Marion (Dovima, who was a major fashion model in the 1950's working closely with photographer Richard Avedon. This was her only film.). An assistant suggests that they go to a bookstore in Greenwich Village to create an intellectual atmosphere. Maggie, Marion, a host of Maggie's staff all in pink and the magazines head photographer, Dick Avery (Fred Astaire), force their way into a dingy, but quiet, bookstore along with all of their equipment. A store employee, Jo Stockton (Audrey Hepburn) protests the uninvited intrusion vehemently, but the "Quality" magazine army locks her out of the store to work undisturbed. After several hours, the "Quality" mob vacates, but the books and store are left in a shambles for Jo to clean up. Dick offers his help to clean the store, but Jo refuses. After Dick leaves, Jo proceeds to sing another wonderful song in the film, "How Long Has This Been Going On?"
Maggie decides that "Quality" must find a real "Quality woman" to represent the magazine and it isn't Marion.Read more ›
THE TRANSFER IS GOD AWFUL!! Washed out color and a horribly grainy look that all but spoils this wonderful film.
IF EVER A CLASSIC FILM NEEDED RESTORATION, THIS IS IT!! Please, would someone get a hold of this masterpiece of romantic musical comedy and do it the justice it deserves. ANYTHING LESS WOULD BE A CRIME.
5 STARS FOR THE FILM. 0 STARS FOR THE DVD. SHAMEFUL!! ACT ACCORDINGLY.
This is the perfect movie to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Audrey's beauty, sophistication and style. Fred Astaire dancing in such a way you are forced to wonder how a man could be capable of such moves. Top it all off with the romantic scenery of Paris.
A charming story of a newly discovered model (Hepburn), falling in love with her photographer (Astaire). Although she tries to fight her feelings, (and although you know the boy will undoubtedly get the girl in the end), it is still a pleasure to watch.
A beautifully restored classic. Check it out!

If I could give this movie less than no stars, I would. I guess we didn't see the same movie that the rest of these reviewers saw. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Grumpy Movie
