AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
TCM, 10:00 p.m. ET
Today is Gene Kelly day on Turner Classic Movies, so tune in virtually any hour of the day or night for some delightful entertainment. But for a taste of the best movie musicals ever made, visit at 10 p.m. ET for 1951’s An American in Paris (pictured), with its audaciously ambitious (and successful) climax based on a ballet tour through works of Impressionist Art – and then, at midnight ET, stay tuned for the flawless, fantastic satire about the birth of the “talkies,” 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain. It’s 60 years old this year, but still plays as completely fresh.
