Un Americaine en Paris

The past two nights I've drifted off to sleep to the sounds of An American In Paris. This is one of my favorite musicals. I love the songs, I love the dance sequences, and I like to think that it's going to help me in my French lessons. That last part is probably not all that true, although it may keep me motivated to continue so that someday I can be an American in Paris too! I find Gene Kelly dreamy in this role, and I always wish I could dance as beautifully as Leslie Caron. I also get such a kick out of Oscar Levant. I think he has some of the best lines of the entire film. This movie can always brighten my day, put a smile on my face, and a song in my soul.
