An American in Paris

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) is An American in Paris, a painter trying to make his mark amongst the French masters. While Jerry struggles to keep his art the focus of a new connection with a high-profile heiress, he becomes enchanted by Lise Bouvier (the ballerina Leslie Caron in her debut film), a beautiful Parisienne with a complicated relationship of her own. Containing one of the most elaborate dance sequences of its time, Vincente Minnelli’s film represents a masterful musical moment in history, with music by George Gershwin full of jazz and wonder! C’est magnifique!

“One of the most imaginative musical confections turned out by Hollywood in years.” – Variety

“A grand show – a brilliant combination of Hollywood’s opulence and technical wizardry with the kind of taste and creativeness that most high-budgeted musicals notoriously lack.” – TIME Magazine
