See these films: An American in Paris + Invitation to the Dance @ the Brattle

Hollywood shows a bit of Francophilia in Vincente Minnelli's ambitious An American in Paris (1951; 2:30 + 7 pm). In it Gene Kelly plays an expatriate Yank artist who exults in the canvases of Renoir and Monet, the tunes of George and Ira Gershwin, and the gamine charms of 19-year-old Leslie Caron. It's paired with Kelly's first solo directorial effort, Invitation to the Dance (1956; 5 + 9:30 pm), a triptych of tales told entirely in music and dance.
