About this movie

Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron sing and dance to the music of George and Ira Gershwin in this winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. When ex-GI Jerry Mulligan (Kelly) remains in Paris to pursue life as an artist, he is discovered by a wealthy patroness interested in more than his art. But Mulligan falls in love with a French shop girl (Caron) who is engaged to his best friend.

The excellent actors could not save this one from its own ignorance. The characters knew nothing of how love works and magically ignored the harsh emotions that easily come out of it. The main characters were actually jerks. On top of that, the musical productions were lack-luster and even ugly. I cannot recommend this movie at all, despite being designed around George Gershwin's amazing music. I don't even recall Rhapsody in Blue being in the movie.

By far one of my favorites. Has been a favorite since I was a child. The colorful scenes and clothing have always enchanted me. Such a sweet love story, with beautiful dance numbers and some wonderfully catchy songs! It is definitely a must see! The creativity shines through all of the scenes.
