An American in Paris
Thursday, June 28th, 2018
Movie Running Time: 1:00 – 2:55 p.m.
Winner of six Academy Awards in 1951 and hailed as one of the most imaginative musicals Hollywood has ever produced! Starring Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant, Nina Foch and Georges Guetary.
Gene Kelly plays Jerry Mulligan, an ex-GI who loves Paris and stays on to earn his living as a struggling sidewalk artist along with his best friend Adam Cook (Oscar Levant), a struggling concert pianist. His paintings are “discovered” by an influential heiress Milo Roberts (Nina Foch), who is interested in more than his art. However, Jerry falls in love with a lovely French girl Lise Bouvier (Leslie Caron), who is already engaged to cabaret singer Henri Baurel (Georges Guetary). Romantic mishaps, dazzling dances and a stunning cabaret finale with Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron at their ultra-best, are spun around the fabulous score of this colorful musical by George and Ira Gershwin featuring such numbers as S’Wonderful, Embraceable You, Our Love is Here to Stay, I Got Rhythm, and many more.
