An American in Paris
The Academy Award winning film for best picture was An American in Paris. The film also took Oscars home for Best Score, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, and Best Costume Design. A special statuette was created and presented to Gene Kelly for his brilliant achievement in the art of choreography on film.

A romantic musical about a struggling artist--Jerry Mulligan. Mulligan is a former GI living in post-WWII Paris. Lise Bouvier is a lonely French shopgirl engaged to marry a successful entertainer unless Jerry can convince her otherwise. Jerry and his best friend, an acerbic pianist, sing and dance their way into Lise's heart and the hearts of everyone who sees the film.

The film was specially written for Gene Kelly and the 17-minute ballet he dances with Lesie Caron is unforgettable! The film also features an incredible line-up of Gershwin tunes including Embraceable You, I Got Rhythm, and Love is Here to Stay.

The Cast:
  • Gene Kelly as Jerry Mulligan
  • Leslie Caron as Lise Bouvier
  • Oscar Levant as Adam Cook
