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. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Feb 3, 2014

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. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: One of the most imaginative musical confections turned out by Hollywood in years. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

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. – Kate Cameron, New York Daily News, Feb 22, 2015

Cinema At Its Best

Elegantly composed, a classic of Hollywood, An American In Paris is a film to be recognized with great stature.One of the most ground breaking musicals to hit the infamous Hollywood soundatages. From the brillant actors that give soul to this timeless picture, to the classic and respected musical scores of Gershwin, it is brillance at it's best.Gene Kelly displays his coreography skills and his knack for dance and 'rhythm', in the numerous dance numbers throughout the film that are expressive and beautiful. This motion picture is a classic for all generations, and should be continued to be cherished for as long time lasts. Do not search for its point, or the practicality, instead get lost in its cinematic treasures, and let the simplicity and innocence, and gayity break through our modern barriers. An American In Paris is an amazing motion picture, and it is the definition of Hollywood gold.

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)

Thanks Grandma!

I always hated the films that my grandmother made me watch, but this is an exception. Gene Kelly is fantastic, and this is one of my favorite movies ever!
