-- Soured Lerner-and-Loewe musical from the Colette story about a 1890's Parisian adolescent (Leslie Caron) who balks at her family's efforts to train her as a courtesan until she meets a charming young man (Louis Jourdan). Directed by Vincente Minnelli, the plush production makes good use of French locales and has a splendid cast but its theme, as enunciated in Maurice Chevalier's smirking rendition of "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," has lost the sense of sophisticated charm that was once considered amusing. Considerable sexual innuendo. (A-III) (br)
