A movie moment ...
I love that whole montage of Astaire shooting the fashion shots of Audrey in Paris in FUNNY FACE, but particularly this: she walks down the steps of the Louvre under that statue (The Winged Victory of Samothrace) and says "shoot the picture, shoot the picture" as he tries to get the shot ... cinema captured in a moment.
FUNNY FACE is not only the essence of 1957 it still looks marvellous now.
