Description by OLDIES.com:

Daddy Long Legs is a magical musical, following a young French girl (Leslie Caron) through college, her education sponsored by a mysterious man with long legs. Millionaire Jervis Pendleton III (Fred Astaire) is from old money, and although generous with his wealth, he must learn how to give of his emotions. Amid sparkling musical numbers and dream sequences, comic relief comes from Fred Clark as Griggs, Jervis' assistant, and Thelma Ritter as Jervis' secretary.

Product Description:

Globe-trotting playboy Astaire spies a young woman living in an orphanage, and on impulse decides to anonymously sponsor her college education. The mystery of her benefactor's identity fuels romantic speculation in the girl, and her letters fuel romantic speculation in Astaire. Caron may not be Astaire's greatest partner, but she's adorable and the score's pleasant.
