An American in Paris (1951, Vincente Minnelli)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Feb 20, 2018

For most of An American in Paris, Gene Kelly’s charm makes up for his lack of acting ability. Even after it turns out the story’s about him stalking Leslie Caron until she agrees to go out with him. It’s okay after that point because she falls immediately in love with Kelly once she does. He makes read more

Father of the Bride (1950, Vincente Minnelli)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Feb 24, 2014

Father of the Bride is such a constant delight, it’s practically over before its problems become clear. First off, it’s definitely about the titular Father–a wonderful Spencer Tracy–who not only narrates but is in almost every scene. The wedding reception, when he’s ch read more

Some Came Running (Vincente Minnelli, 1958)

Movie Classics Posted by Judy on Jan 12, 2014

Director Vincente Minnelli created one of the warmest portrayals of American family life on film in the great musical Meet Me in St Louis (1944). But he gives a very different, darker take on families in Some Came Running, a 1950s melodrama which tackles the type of subject matter that Douglas Sirk read more

Movie Classics Posted by Judy on Mar 16, 2013

Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse There’s a Western musical number in one of Fred Astaire’s least-known films, Let’s Dance (1950), where a TV set is seen on the wall, showing a cowboy film.

Meet Me In St Louis (Vincente Minnelli, 1944)

Movie Classics Posted by Judy on Jan 3, 2013

Judy Garland and Tom Drake Many great musicals have plots packed with drama and unlikely coincidences. By contrast, on the surface anyway, Meet Me In St Louis has almost no plot at all.
