George and Ira Gershwin | It is hard to think of any Gershwin tune as a “mere” song or a minor piece, when every note he composed was golden.
Timeless entertainment-- wholesome, colourful and fun with music that lives on in our cached playlist.
Absolutely love that manly dance of Gene Kelly. Always my top movie of all time. Also recall that Steve & Eydie did perhaps the ultimate Gershwin medley in song. You can hear the thrilling tour de force in their album Our Love Is Here To Stay, The Gershwin Years. Unforgettable. A Valentine love gift for the ages. Plus, Gene Kelley appeared with his daughter Bridget on their TV show. God bless them all.
Gene Kelly always brings to mind my sixth-grade teacher, Sister Judith, a highly opinionated Irish nun, who assured us with a smile that "Gene Kelly is a manly dancer." Then, with a disdainful curl of her upper lip, proclaim that Fred Astaire did not fit her outlook on dancing manliness.
Great movie, and I always love a scene with Oscar Levante!
I've seen An American in Paris many times, it never grows old, and I never tire of it! Check out the face of each person in the scene behind Kelly and Guetary as they sing the song: sheer genuine joy! No need to take an acting class to feel that. And the very last frame in the song sequence? Well, that's the world I want to live in! As always, THANK YOU.
