  3. "Lullaby" by George Gershwin, played by Cuarteto Latinoamericano. One of my favorite Gershwin compositions, fo sho.

Gene Kelly in An American in Paris (1951, dir. Vincente Minnelli) Art director Preston Ames designed the set in the style of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s painting Chocolat Dancing In Bar Darchille.

  5. This one always gets me choked up. I love the music, the art, everything about it. It was glorious to see this on the big screen - I strongly recommend renting the DVD. Also - watch for a Gershwin cameo at the 6:20 mark.
