Best Picture Collection 2: Classic Musicals / Mov

Overview

Gene Kelly does his patented Pal Joey bit as Jerry Mulligan, an opportunistic American painter living in Paris' "starving artists" colony. He is discovered by wealthy Milo Roberts Nina Foch, who becomes Jerry's patroness in more ways than one. Meanwhile, Jerry plays hookey on this setup by romancing waif-like Lise Bouvier Leslie Caron--who, unbeknownst to him, is the object of the affections of his close friend Henri Georges Guetary, a popular nightclub performer the film was supposed to make Guetary into "the ...

Overview

Gene Kelly does his patented Pal Joey bit as Jerry Mulligan, an opportunistic American painter living in Paris' "starving artists" colony. He is discovered by wealthy Milo Roberts Nina Foch, who becomes Jerry's patroness in more ways than one. Meanwhile, Jerry plays hookey on this setup by romancing waif-like Lise Bouvier Leslie Caron--who, unbeknownst to him, is the object of the affections of his close friend Henri Georges Guetary, a popular nightclub performer the film was supposed to make Guetary into "the New Chevalier." It didn't. The thinnish plot is held together by the superlative production numbers and by the recycling of several vintage George Gershwin tunes, including "I Got Rhythm," "S'wonderful," and "Our Love is Here to Stay." Highlights include Guetary's rendition of "Stairway to Paradise"; Oscar Levant's fantasy of conducting and performing Gershwin's "Concerto in F" Levant also appears as every member of the orchestra; and the closing 17-minute "American in Paris" ballet, in which Kelly and Caron dance before lavish backgrounds based on the works of famed French artists.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
Warner Home Video pays homage to one of cinema's most delightful genres with this collection, which brings together three great American musicals, all winners of the Academy Award for Best Picture. An American in Paris, Vincente Minnelli's tour de force starring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron, won a total of seven Oscars, including Best Art Direction for its extraordinarily inventive sets. The waiflike Caron is also the star of Minnelli's Gigi, another exquisite song-and-dance extravaganza set in Paris. One of the last great musicals produced by MGM, Gigi won nine Oscars. My Fair Lady, of course, features Audrey Hepburn in her most unforgettable role as the Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle. Though Hepburn was beaten out in the Best Actress category that year, the film walked away with eight Oscars and remains one of the best-loved musicals of all time. A behind-the-scenes documentary and rare footage of Hepburn singing make this disc -- indeed, the entire set -- a must-have.
