Jambon Beurre..without butter but plenty of ham
Everyone seems to love, love, love “An American in Paris”. For this viewer, I’ve never been able to sit through the entire movie in one sitting, so assembling the pieces in my head usually sends me running for a bottle of aspirine.

MGM made a number of classic musicals, but AAIP isn’t one of them, despite the best picture Oscar it garnered. One wonders if the award was really aimed at the post-war expatriate Americans who stayed behind to live the Bohemian lifestyle of the fabled “starving artist”. Gene Kelly’s artiste seems to be well fed and well shod (with his trademark loafers) as he lives a life of artistic abandon in the slums of Paris. He taps, twirls, and gives his usual athletic spin on the male dance while hobnobbing with the poor people of Paris. He can’t paint very well, but hey! let’s sing a Gershwin tune and all the Parisians who wanted to knock him out for mispronouncing everything are suddenly his musical bon amis.

Kelly’s unrelenting guy from the States becomes annoying in the first half hour, and goes from there. Leslie Caron is pretty, but wooden in the extreme. Oscar Levant does his “talented piano bum” for the 1000th time, spreading seedy charm over absolutely nothing. Only Nina Foch, as a horny and predatory rich bitch with connections to the upper echelon of the 50s art world escapes with some dignity. All she really wanted was to get laid, which Kelly charmingly tapdances his way out of in his dogged pursuit of Caron.

AAIP drags on for about two weeks, giving you terrible matte paintings and backlot versions of the City of Lights. These sets were used hundreds of times in the MGM pantheon of “foreign” settings and it shows.The climatic 17 minute “ballet” around an ugly fountain is nearly impossible to sit through, unless you think that Kelly’s terpsichorean prowess is from the Ballet Des Artes. He’s one note away from boogie-woogie and all his smarmy charm can’t convince. He’s only good in one sequence here, his tra-la-la-la duet with Levant. He’s surprisingly hunky in his wife beater T and open shirt, acting like he’s about to give Levant some afternoon delight for a few francs.

AAIP is pretty threadbare at this point in time, and does nothing to really celebrate the travails of the artists who chose to stay behind in Paris to pursue a career in the arts. Jambon beurre is French for “ham and butter sandwich”, a treat sold in the streets of Paris. AAIP has no butter to smooth the rough edges, but plenty of ham to spare.
