What does LILI mean?
- Lili is an American film. An MGM release, it stars Leslie Caron as a touchingly naïve French girl, whose emotional relationship with a carnival puppeteer is conducted through the medium of four puppets. The screenplay by Helen Deutsch was adapted from "The Man Who Hated People," a short story by Paul Gallico which appeared in the October 28, 1950 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. Following the film's success, Gallico expanded his story into a 1954 novella entitled The Love of Seven Dolls. It won the Academy Award for Original Music Score and was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Best Cinematography, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. It was also entered into the 1953 Cannes Film Festival. Leslie Caron and Mel Ferrer's rendition of "Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo" was released as a single and became a minor hit, reaching #30 on the pop music charts. The film was adapted for the stage under the title Carnival!.
