Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

A winner of six Oscars® including Best Picture, An American in Paris (1951) was Vincente Minnelli's love letter to the City of Lights and to the music of George Gershwin. Gene Kelly plays Jerry Mulligan, a former American GI trying to make a living in France as an artist after the war. He's taken on by an American patron of the arts (Nina Foch) who has other intentions, but he falls in love with a local girl (Leslie Caron in her debut) who happens to be the intended of a Parisian cabaret performer (Georges Guetary). The music of George and Ira Gershwin sparkles throughout the film, including Kelly and Guetary's ironic duet "'S Wonderful," Kelly's simple ballad "Love Is Here to Stay," Guetary's flamboyant "I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise," and Kelly's tour-de-force "I Got Rhythm" dance with a bunch of kids. Oscar Levant plays his usual acerbic self as Jerry's friend and pianist, and performs the final movement of the Concerto in F--accompanied by an orchestra of himselves. The movie famously concludes with a 17-minute fantasy ballet set to the tone poem the movie is named after. While its scope and placement might seem a little odd to viewers decades later, it's an elaborate showcase of Kelly's dancing and choreography (he received an honorary Oscar that year for it), and started a trend that would be followed by similar numbers in Singin' in the Rain and Oklahoma! --David Horiuchi

3.0 out of 5 stars Great George Gershwin - so so Kelly Nov. 9 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) ex-GI stays in Paris to practice painting. There he is patronized by a jealous Milo Roberts (Nina Foch). Mean time he is trying to make time with a store clerk that is more than she appears to be (Leslie Caron).

Not one of Kelly's best but passable. However even at his best, one has to have a taste for that sort of thing. He is sort of a Danny Kay type. His high-water pants are his signature and really looks out of place. He cannot sing worth beans. However, he did do a good job in "What a Way to Go."

Even though this film is not a notable movie Vincente Minnelli, (1903-1986) directed it. He directed some great movies and some that you would never suspect such as "The Long Long Trailer."

I have always enjoyed watching Gene Kelly portraying various characters in film.
Particulary his singing and dancing in the scene where the children join in by the restaurant...
A great dancer and singer....
