Film Series: An American In Paris

1951. USA. Dir: Vincente Minnelli. With Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron. 113 min.

Kelly dances and woos Caron amidst cafe?s, canals, and catchy Gershwin tunes like “S’Wonderful” and “I Got Rhythm.” This sparkling musical may represent the apex of MGM’s extravagant Technicolor production design – after all, why go to Paris when you can build it better in studio? – with the climactic art-inspired dream ballet as its pie?ce de re?sistance.
