An American in Paris

Videos and DVDs
Kelly plays an ex-GI who loves Paris and loves even more an alluring (but engaged) perfume-shop clerk (Leslie Caron). Dance sequences spun around Gershwin songs accent Kelly's romantic pursuit. The final 17-minute ballet and Kelly's unique talent for telling a story in dance lifts this winner of six Academy Awards into the ether of timelessness.
