The Young Girls of Rochefort trailer: 1967 French movie musical

It's Monday. 
But I bet this fun and frothy trailer from the 1967 French film 
Les Demoiselles de Rochefort will make you smile anyway! 





The film was written and directed by Jacques Remy; Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) composed the score.

Catherine Deneuve, her real-life twin sister, Francois Dorleac,  Gene Kelly,  West Side Story's George Chakiris and dancer Grover Dale - Dale was a guest teacher on So You Think You Can Dance in 2010- star.



Judging from the American and French posters for the film, Gene Kelly was not quite the star in France that he was in the US.  If you enjoy les things Francais, check out Dreaming of France; a French appreciation meme hosted every Monday at An Accidental Blog.

  1. What fun. It has a Frankie and Annette feel to it, only set in Rocheforte instead of California. Thanks for playing along. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

  2. It looks hysterical! I haven't heard of it in either the French or English incarnations.
