An American in Paris

I haven't done a Gene Kelly movie in awhile, so I thought the time had come for An American in Paris (1951). I really like this one - great costumes and scenery, ballet dancing, art-inspired... it's great.

The plot of this one is pretty simple - Gene Kelly plays an artist living in Paris. He falls in love with a girl. She loves him, but she's engaged to someone else. Oh no. What will happen? Guess. Just guess.

  1. I remember watching this movie with my mom and being totally into it - and then they got to that scene where he's in the all white/beige outfit and my mom, totally out of character, exclaimed that she thought he looked like a sperm.


  2. I LOVE this film. Absolutely love it. I went through a big Gene Kelly phase in my teens and watched this film a lot. Love the big ballet when Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron are in silhouette and the music changes. Stunning. Great design too. It was fun to look through all the pictures.


Thanks for your comment you wonderful person you.
