  • "An American in Paris" was originally a symphonic poem written by composer George Gershwin, expressing his joy when he first saw Paris. After MGM bought the right to shoot the song, screenwriter Alan Jay Le Na followed the tune and imagined a love story  .
  • Gene Kelly saw Carly Jane dance while on vacation in Paris and recommended her for the lead actress because he thought a French film should have a French actress in it  .
  • Carly Jane was not familiar with English when she took the film, so she made up for it. Fortunately, she did not have many lines in the film, so she did not reveal her strangeness to English.  .
  • MGM spent nearly $500,000 for final 17 minutes of group dance  .
  • In the film, Gene Kelly pioneered the dance model of adding modern dance to classical ballet, and later musical films such as "West Side Story" and "Dance Out of My Life" adopted this dance form  .

    Although it is a musical, and it is also very exciting and gorgeous, the long musical performances that are not closely related to the plot are too overwhelming.

    Leslie Caron is absolutely incredible. But was there really no good script that year?
