What a joy! It's M-G-M's Technicolor musical!
Jerry Mulligan is an exuberant American expatriate in Paris trying to make a reputation as a painter. His friend Adam is a struggling concert pianist who's a long time associate of a famous French singer, Henri Baurel. A lonely society woman, Milo Roberts, takes Jerry under her wing and supports him, but is interested in more than his art.

I've watched it! The film has a good value of music and dance! I'm so impressed that USA(maybe also Europe) had made such a wonderful musical movie even in 1951! It's about 60 years ago. I thought the American and European culture have an big influence on a current "flash mob" held all over the world. Also, the plot is romantic and Paris attract me a lot. The city has always attracted many people. I like the quote;
Lise : Maybe Paris has a way of making people forget.
Jerry : Paris? No. Not this city. It's too real and too beautiful to ever let you forget anything.
