Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A 1958 MGM movie musical based on the 1944 novella by Colette, Gigi was directed by Vincente Minnelli and written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, following their success on My Fair Lady. Starring Maurice Chevalier and Leslie Caron as the eponymous Gigi, the film won all nine of its Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, breaking the record set by Gone with the Wind. [1]

Gaston is a rich Parisian who wants to break from the traditions of his family. He finds refuge in his time with Gigi, a young girl raised by her aunt and grandmother to be a rich man's courtesan. For quite a while, the two see each other as siblings, nothing more. Over time, Gaston comes to the realization that Gigi has grown up. Can he really bear to take her as his mistress?

Not to be confused with Gigli.

Tropes used in Gigi include:
  1. Not counting the latter's two special awards.
