Gigot Poster


Gigot (Jackie Gleason) is a Parisian janitor who is mute and docile, a noble simpleton kicked around by uncaring society. Yet he is tenderly human: He frequents all local funerals and never fails to cry. When he finds a local prostitute (Katherine Kath) and her bright-eyed daughter, Nicole (Diane Gardner), sheltering in his doorway, he takes them into his home. The lumbering giant and Nicole become fast friends, and Gigot finally has a family. But how long will this happiness last?
