YMMV: Gigi
  • Adaptation Displacement: The musical and film are more known than the original short story. There was also a French film made of the story in 1948 which is practically unheard of.
  • Values Dissonance: Lots. The men celebrate driving a woman to (attempted) suicide, gossip is the order of the day, and Gigi's grandmother and grand-aunt work very hard at training her to be a disposable mistress. They even negotiate the size of the apartment and number of servants she will get in exchange for her virginity.
