Gene Kelly is at his most exuberant and charismatic here. He, and the other players, provide ample entertainment through song and dance. It's a fun, upbeat watch. The only thing keeping it from greatness is the so-so romance. I would've gave it even more of a pass, if not for the rushed closure.

The ballet dance piece in the middle of the film to Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" cements this film as a visual masterpiece. Some of my favorite choreography and set pieces are on display here.

I am usually interested in musicals, especially the ones that are in the AFI top 100. This film is not deserving. The relationship that is built between Gene Kelly and his female co star is lackluster at best. Maybe it was my mood?

Review - An American in Paris (1951)

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) was an American painter living in Paris, with an amorous publicist, Milo Roberts (Nina Foch), helping him along. Lise Bouvier (Leslie Caron) was a young woman who was in love with singer Henri Baurel (Georges Guétary). When these two meet, however, their relationships are troubled in the Best Picture winning film, "An American in Paris."

I love seeing movie musicals that were specifically written for the big screen. Seeing a Broadway show acted out on film is fine, but when somebody writes a musical that is made only for film, I really respect that. "An American in Paris" is actually based on a composition from the late 20's, but it's still original and exciting.

I'm not a big fan of singing-and-dancing musicals, as I may have mentioned before. I've alway...

Rating of
3.5/4
