DIRECTOR: VINCENTE MINNELLI

CAST: LESLIE CARON, MAURICE CHEVALIER, LOUIS JOURDAN, EVA GABOR

Gamine Leslie Caron plays the descendent of a long line of famous courtesans coming of age in Belle Époque Paris in this sprightly Toulouse Lautrec-inspired classic from MGM MVP Minnelli, who makes use of every inch of the Metrocolor CinemaScope frame. Audiences responded rapturously to this gay affair with star turns by Maurice Chevalier and Louis Jourdan and its infectious Lerner and Loewe score, and so did the Academy, throwing awards at the movie until there very nearly weren’t any left; its nine wins were a record at the time. “More imaginative use of cinema than all our recent pseudo-realist movies put together.”—Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice
