Orphan Lili Daurier joins a carnival and falls under the spell of its star, a suave magician. But it is the show's crippled, embittered puppeteer who truly loves Lili, a love he can express only through his puppets. "It is not often that the word 'enchanting' can accurately be applied to a musical," Clive Hirschhorn wrote in The Hollywood Musical, "but it was the best way to describe Lili, as well as Leslie Caron's genuinely touching performance." Nominated for six Academy Awards , Lili offers sentiment without sugar, simplicity without banality and a lyrical heart that beats to an Oscar -winning Bronislau Kaper score highlighted by Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo and an imaginative sequence of Caron dancing with her beloved puppets come to life. Mel Ferrer, Jean Pierre Aumont, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Amanda Blake and Kurt Kasznar also star.
