An American in Paris

An American in Paris

An American in Paris (1951): Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly), a struggling American painter in Paris, is “discovered” by an influential heiress with an interest in more than Jerry’s art. Jerry in turn falls for Lise (Leslie Caron), a young French girl already engaged to a cabaret singer. Jerry jokes, sings and dances with his best friend, an acerbic would-be concert pianist, while romantic complications abound.

Directed by Vincente Minnelli

    what would happen if PBS wanted to show a pro-Palestinian movement? Not any time soon. Every time a Palestinian child dies, in the continuing American-public funded Palestinian genocide, PBS, especially the pathetic Pi Roman is complicit. Tu sabe. Long live the Palestinian struggle for self-determination and long live the memory of the Young Lords. And Jim Lehrer, curator of the gretaest collection of middle aged white men, can eat my shorts.
    Want my money, PBS? Take my eyeballs instead.
