1. Funny Face (1957) PG

Starring Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn, this a delightful musical that has recently risen in popularity. Audrey Hepburn plays a bookish young woman chosen as the new face for a high-fashion magazine. Fred Astaire is the head photographer and the two strike up a sweet friendship. It is a fantastic film filled with dancing, drama, and the high fashion of the 1950s.

There is a brief scene where Audrey Hepburn’s character gets herself in a sticky situation with a professor who she thinks just wants to talk to her. Nothing happens, but it gets a little uncomfortable. It is a very easy scene to skip. 

You can watch the film on Amazon.

After World War 2, America welcomed the affluence of the 1950s with a huge economics surge. This was clearly depicted with the growth of the world of fashion. Any students who are interested in the 1950s will love Dave Raymond’s Modern World History curriculum.

2. Brigadoon (1954) G

Another little known movie night musical, Brigadoon is one of the sweetest films I have ever watched. Gene Kelly and Cyd Charrisse play a naive young American and a lovely Scottish girl from a bygone era. The dance sequences are delightful, especially if you have a child in a dance class. It presents a quaint and colorful picture of a tiny Scottish town caught in a weird spell. Everyone in your family will greatly enjoy the film.

You can rent the film on Amazon.
