Description

This 1955 Oscar-nominated musical romance features the incomparable Fred Astaire in some of his most stunning dance sequences. Daddy Long Legs is a magical musical, following a young French girl (Leslie Caron) through college, her education sponsored by a mysterious man with ling legs. Millionaire Jervis Pendleton III (Fred Astaire) is from old money, and although he is generous with his wealth, he must learn how to give of his emotions. Amid sparkling musical numbers and dream sequences, comic relief comes from Fred Clark as Griggs, Jervis' assistant, and Thelma Ritter as Jervis’ secretary.
