    I’ve never seen this musical but know it was a big inspiration for La La Land and would love to see it on the big screen as all musicals are intended. Plus I just started dating someone who likes musical theater and would love to redeem our first movie date; we saw Cats.

  2. Liliana Maria Radwanski says:

    An American in Paris remains a Timeless Classic in MGM’s History. It remains one of the greatest Musicals ever made.
    Gene Kelly Sparkled dancing with ingenue Leslie Caron
    Gene also danced with Animated Characters Tom and Jerry.
    Add to this, the romantic backdrop of Paris, France 🇫🇷 which is the other star of the film. It was directed by Vincente Minnelli and featured Gershwin Tunes.”S’ Wonderful,it’s Marvelous.
    Gene showed he had Rhythm.
    This is one of my Favorite MGM Musicals.
    I would love to see it on big screen

  3. Destiny L Drake says:

    The reason I would love to go see this movie is because, I’ve never seen it, I love seeing gene Kelly’s dancing , the color looks very great, and I love musicals

  4. Ashley Hinz says:

    I think it’s the dance numbers, because there really isn’t an unusual storyline.

  5. Jamie S says:

    Oh I was waiting and hoping the contests would come back!! I just love seeing all these classic movies in the theater! Gene Kelly is so fun to watch, such grace and style, you can tell he loves every minute of what he’s doing. I love this romantic story.

    Shoot, forgot to add I do not have an twitter account so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

  7. My daughter is a huge Broadway fan, as am I. We saw the Broadway version a couple of years ago. It is starkly different in tone and texture from the movie. I’d love for her to see the movie to see how the same material can be interpreted in very different ways.

  8. Diana says:

    I think any movie with Gene Kelly dancing is a classic, but with this one it’s also the music.

  9. Tim says:

    I think having Gene Kelly in any film makes it a classic! This is one of my wife’s favorite films and I would love to surprise her with tickets to see it!

    Thanks CMH! I’m so excited about this year’s TCM movie schedule!!!

    A song for every purpose, a dance for every reason, lush colors, extravagant sets and costume, an idealized world. All mark AN AMERICAN IN PARIS as a “Classic” movie musical. One area in which it diverges from the most common template is that, while deeply romantic in tone, that romance is abstract, a relationship to life, rather than to a particular pair of lovers.

  11. Vicki Boston says:

    And this WAS Leslie Caron’s Film debut.
    Also was a BIG HIT on Broadway too.
    Is also filled with Magical Gershwin Tunes.


  12. RD says:

    It is one of my favorite movies! It is a classic because everything about it is fabulous — the story, the dancing sequences, the music, etc. I would love to see it on the big screen!!!

  13. Kat C says:

    What makes it a classic? The letter G. It’s the timeless music of the Gershwins and the performance/choreography by Gene Kelly that make this film one that stands the test of time. Every number is a gem, and the epic ballet at the end is a lively, colorful feast for the eyes.

  14. Javier Valverde says:

    What makes “An American in Paris” a classic, 69 years after its release is the beautiful direction of Vincente Minnelli of blending the Gershwins’ music with the plot, acting and dancing into a seamless tapestry of music and emotion. The leads of Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron and the Gershwins’ music add magic to the movie.

  15. Susan Wohlgemuth says:

    I love Gene Kelly! Of course, the dancing is the best part of the movie- anything he is in is wonderful, but the romantic setting of Paris makes it extra special. So glad to be close enough to a theatre that has Fathom events so I can enter your contest to win free tickets- a great date night event as we are celebrating our 50 years of marriage with a date every week for a year!

  16. Brad Harju says:

    Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron make An American in Paris a classic. The whole picture especially the music and the colors! I’ve watched this movie many times. If you can watch a movie many times it’s usually a classic!

  17. The Gershwin music coupled with the talents of Gene Kelly and the way MGM made musicals as a whole make this a classic that will never fail to inspire the movie making industry and those who see it!

  18. Eliezer Colon says:

    What makes An American in Paris such a classic to me is that this was the musical that made me fell in love with the genre after years of resisting. And ever since then I can’t get enough of watching them whether they’re the old ones or newer ones, and all that credit goes to An American in Paris and Gene Kelly. I do hope I get the chance to see this movie this month at a theater because after watching the film countless at times on TCM and my DVD copy, it’ll be a great honor to see the film for the first time on the big screen.
