When I watched Gigi when I was in my late teens, I had no idea that Gigi was being groomed to be a high price prostitute. Raised in a protective home and taught by nuns for thirteen years, I just didn’t get it. I thought that Louis Jordan singing “GiGI” at night by the water fountain was so romantic!  I was in my thirties, or even forties when I watched it again. What a shock ! I had compared Gigi’s getting dressed up in splendor to Eliza’s( of My Fair Lady) introduction to society, when there was no comparison! Now,the new Broadway’s musical excised the song “Thank Heavens for Little Girl” from an old man’s mouth. A creepy pedophile? I really should rewatch some old favorite movies to see whether I had misinterpreted them in my youthful innocence.
