This is probably the most memorable song from the 1958 film Gigi
and far superior to the Oscar winning title song. Like the rest of the score it was composed by Frederick Loewe with lyrics by Alan Jay Learner, who also wrote the screenplay. It is sung by the elderly Maurice Chevalier (1888-1972), whose thick, almost syrupy French accent made him the ideal vocalist for a song whose theme is that little girls are suddenly not so little, as Gigi's leading man Gaston realized when the girl he regarded as more of a little sister, was suddenly much more than that. Gigi was played by Leslie Caron, and her leading man by Louis Jordan.
