Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: ...the picture takes on its glow of magic when Miss Caron is on the screen. When she isn't, it bumps along slowly as a patched-up, conventional musical show.
Fresh: A grand show -- a brilliant combination of Hollywood's opulence and technical wizardry with the kind of taste and creativeness that most high-budgeted musicals notoriously lack.
Fresh: One of the most imaginative musical confections turned out by Hollywood in years.
Fresh: Inspired by the late George Gershwin's impressionistic musical suite of the same name, the picture is one of the finest musicals Hollywood has ever produced.
I don't get. I just don't get it

A Gene Kelly classic!
This is an excellent classic musical. Gene Kelly was a legendary dancer/performer and he gives another ecelent performance in Paris. If you enjoy classic musicals, don't hesitate to buy this. (I own it in DVD)
