An American in Paris
(1951) Directed by Vincente Minnelli. Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant. (113 min.)

George Gershwin’s classic songs tell the story of a GI who stays on in Paris after the war and falls in love with a piquant gamine hiding a secret. Gene Kelly’s genius is on brilliant display in this iconic Technicolor confection. Oscar’s Best Picture of 1951, it swept the other categories as well, including a special Oscar for the Kelly-choreographed dream ballet that closes the film, a crucial inspiration for La La Land.

“The last 17 1/2 minutes of An American in Paris are an unequaled masterpiece. The dance sequence choreographed by star Gene Kelly brings to life the canvases of such French artists as Dufy, Utrillo, Renoir, and Lautrec in spectacular fashion” (San Francisco Chronicle).
