An American in Paris

Scroll down

Part of our ‘Matinee Classics’ season

Gene Kelly stars as Jerry Mulligan, a carefree young artist in post-WW II Paris. In her spectacular film debut Leslie Caron is Lise Bourvier, a lonely French shopgirl engaged to marry a successful entertainer unless Jerry can convince her otherwise! From their first on-screen meeting to the spectacular ballet finale, Kelly and Caron are superb. And in his role as Jerry’s best friend, pianist Oscar Levant keeps the action lively with his droll humor and acid wit.
