Movie Mondays: "An American in Paris"
July 16, 2012
Dazzling color and brilliant choreography frame a lovely score by George and Ira Gershwin in this highly original musical. An American in Paris won the 1951 Academy Award® for Best Picture and includes an unusual 20 minute ballet sequence choreographed by its star, Gene Kelly.
