Directed by Vincente Minnelli | 1948

With Gene Kelly, Judy Garland, Walter Slezak

“Lively, colorful, and lyrical—shows in some of the most romantic close-ups ever put on film.”
—Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

A traveling actor (Kelly) woos a starry-eyed damsel (Garland) by impersonating her romantic idol, the notorious pirate Macoco, in Minnelli’s dazzlingly stylized, riotously colorful celebration of artifice. The memorable Cole Porter songs include two renditions of “Be a Clown”: first performed by Kelly and gravity-defying dance team the Nicholas Brothers, then again by Kelly and Garland.
