Winner of 6 Oscars and ranked among the American Film Institute’s 100 greatest American movies of all time, An American in Paris is a glorious, Technicolor paean to the golden age of the Hollywood musical. Inspired by George Gershwin’s musical suite of the same title, the film, set in post-War Paris, is a delightful romantic romp with eye-popping set design paying homage to the great French painters, and a full-scale 17-minute ballet that showcases the dazzling, athletic artistry of dance legend Gene Kelly and the whimsical grace of Leslie Caron.
