Brandon, Eric and Allison break down the 1958 Best Picture Winner, Gigi!

It's Oscar season and Front Row Classics is taking a look at the Best Picture winner of 1958: Gigi. The movie was the winner of our Best Picture poll on our Facebook page back in February. This original film musical won 9 Oscars and is famous for its melodic score and gorgeous sets & costumes. Yet, our hosts explore the outdated plot and archaic themes which hold the film back from aging well. Allison Means joins Brandon and Eric for what may be our most polarizing episode yet.
