TCM Musical Matinee host Dave Karger breaks down the climactic scene of 1951’s ‘An American in Paris’ (but not all 17 minutes!) and explains why it’s such a landmark in the history of movie musicals.

Their chemistry was off the charts in this sequence. ❤️
I'm excited for Musical Matinees. I watch TCM with my mom all the time, and we love a musical. :D
Just wonderful thank you 🙏
What are the other nine musicals that won Oscars for best picture?
I think Kelly was also influenced by the 17 minute ballet in the The Red Shoes.
George Gershwin is one of my favorite composers. I loved his music since I was a young girl and I'm 68 now. And I love all MGM musicals.
I actually don't have better things to do with my day, then to watch the 17 minute sequence with you Dave.
The music can stand on its own and really outshines both Kelly and Caron in this scene. I’ve seen this movie so many times. I need the box set if one is available. It’s about time that musicals have been given there own show on TCM. Been waiting 2 decades for this😂. Bravo🙏🙏
Love it! Thank you Dave!
