Daddy Long Legs

Daddy Long Legs (1955) - starring Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron.

I like so many Fred Astaire movies. I would actually go so far as to say that I love Funny Face... but I can't stand how he is almost always at LEAST 15 years older than the women playing his love interests - sometimes even older than that! 

During the filming of Daddy Long Legs, he was fifty-six and Leslie Caron was only twenty-four. GIVE ME A BREAK. No.
