Classic 1951 film starring Gene Kelly as an American ex-GI who stays in post-war Paris to become a painter, Music and Dancing- they don’t make them like this anymore!
Gerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) is an American ex-GI who stays in post-war Paris to become a painter, and falls for the gamine charms of Lise Bouvier (Leslie Caron). However, his paintings come to the attention of Milo Roberts, a rich American heiress, who is interested in more than just art.
“Gershwin songs are magnificent, and the climactic ballet a tour de force that won the great Hungarian-born cameraman John Alton an Oscar.” The Guardian
“The stunning song-and-dance segments are the main appeal of this movie, particularly Gershwin’s 17-minute title piece,” Common Sense Media
“Metro has another sock boxoffice winner in “An American in Paris.” Film is one of the most imaginative musical confections turned out by Hollywood in years.” Variety
