Part of See It Big! Best Cinematography, in Black & White and Color
Saturday, March 10, 2018, 4:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater

Dir. Vincente Minnelli. 1951, 113 mins. 35mm. With Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant. Minnelli’s breathtaking Best Picture winner stars the ever-captivating Kelly as a painter struggling to make ends meet in the City of Light. With a thrilling all-Gershwin score and a spectacularly designed, climactic dream ballet sequence shot by the brilliant cinematographer John Alton (who shared the Oscar with Alfred Gilks for this film), An American in Paris is pure cinematic bliss and a musical movie landmark filled with such gems as “I Got Rhythm,” “’S Wonderful,” “Love Is Here to Stay,” and “I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise.”
