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. 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.



  • Beautiful story

    By Nancy81
    I saw this movie on TV when I was younger. I have always looked for it since then but never knew the title. Then I came across the novella "Love of the seven dolls" and realized the movie that was made for it was Lili. This movie is a classic to watch over and over again.
  • Beautiful Story about the Redeeming power of Love

    By Ratonline
    This film is based on the heartwarming book by Paul Gallico, "Love of Seven Dolls" whose main theme is the redeeming power of innocence and love. The book is a true gem and up to now I haven't been able to find the rare screen version anywhere. Thanks iTunes for making this rare film available.
