'Funny Face' is an American musical film released in 1957 in VistaVision Technicolor, with assorted songs by George and Ira Gershwin. The film was written by Leonard Gershe and directed by Stanley Donen. It stars Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, and Kay Thompson. Photographer Richard Avedon designed the opening title sequence and consulted on the film, and Astaire played Dick Avery, a still photographer. Contrary to common belief, only four of the songs are from the 1927 Broadway musical production of the same name.
