AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
1951, Warner Brothers, 115 min, Dir: Vincente Minnelli

Director Vincente Minnelli’s most popular musical and 1951’s Oscar Best Picture winner features irrepressible Gene Kelly as a struggling-to-make-it painter in Paris, caught between the romantic aspirations of a wealthy patron (Nina Foch) and his true love, the young Leslie Caron. Kelly sings, dances and cracks wise with his smart-aleck buddy, pianist Oscar Levant, while trying to choose his fate. Also received Academy Awards for Screenplay, Score, Cinematography and Art Direction.
