Funny Face

This Audrey Hepburn/Fred Astaire musical is not as well known as some of their other (separate) projects but is still worth seeing. Hepburn plays a young retail worker in a bookstore. Astaire is a photographer that sees something special in her. She soon becomes the new face of fashion despite the fact that her look is "funny." Half of the film takes place in beautiful Paris. There is one particularly famous scene where Hepburn dances in a seedy bar to prove a point.
