An American in Paris(MGM,1951)

One of the greatest musicals ever.Among other things the final ballet is probably the best ballet or musical number in the movie history.But the film contains other three memorable musical numbers.The choreographies are by Kelly,of course,the direction is by Vincente Minnelli,music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin.

"I Got Rhythm".
Great Tap solo by Gene Kelly.

"An American in Paris".
Probably the greatest.Gene Kelly,Leslie Caron and chorus in this masterpiece incredibly danced in four different styles(Jazz,Modern,Tap,Ballet!!),those kind of things that only these artists in the world can do.

"Our Love Is Here To Stay".
Beautiful modern pas de deux danced by Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron.

The other memorable Tap solo by Gene Kelly.
