FUNNY FACE Set For Blu-ray Debut, 4/8

FUNNY FACE Set For Blu-ray Debut, 4/8Iconic movie musical FUNNY FACE, starring Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn, directed by Stanley Donen, is set for a long-awaited Blu-ray debut according to a new announcement.

The official description of FUNNY FACE is as follows: "S'wonderful, s'marvelous! In the Academy Award nominated classic, Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire join forces, lending their song and dance talents to a timeless music. When a fashion magazine mogul (Kay Thompson) and her head photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) scout out a bookstore for their next photo shoot, Dick discovers the unique face of bookseller and amateur philosopher Jo Stockton (Hepburn). Whisked off to Paris, Jo is soon transformed into a global supermodel and finds herself falling for the photographer who first noticed her sunny, funny face. Filmed in VistaVision."

Of note, the film features the title, star and some songs from the 1927 stage musical of the same name by George and Ira Gershwin, though incidentally the film shares little relation to the theatrical property.

S'wonderful, anyway!
