3 《花都艷舞》 -英文劇情介紹
Jerry Mulligan, a struggling American painter in Paris, is "discovered" by an influential heiress with an interest in more than Jerry's art. Jerry in turn falls for Lise, a young French girl already engaged to a cabaret singer. Jerry jokes, sings and dances with his best friend, an acerbic would-be concert pianist, while romantic complications abound. Written by Scott Renshaw
4 《花都艷舞》 -經典對白
Adam Cook: I'm a concert pianist. That's a pretentious way of saying I'm... unemployed at the moment.
Jerry Mulligan: That's... quite a dress you almost have on.
Milo Roberts: Thanks.
Jerry Mulligan: What holds it up?
Milo Roberts: Modesty.
Adam Cook: It's not a pretty face, I grant you, but underneath its flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Henri Baurel: You only find the right one once.
Adam Cook: That many times?
Henri Baurel: Be happy! You only find the right woman once.
Adam Cook: That many times?
Adam Cook: [Jerry, Henri Baurel and Adam are at the café, talking. Adam desperately tries to prevent the other two men from revealing to each other they love the same woman by distracting them] Did I ever tell you about the time I gave a command performance for Hitler?
Jerry Mulligan: Where is everyone?
Milo Roberts: Here.
Jerry Mulligan: Downstairs?
Milo Roberts: No, here in this room.
Jerry Mulligan: What about that extra girl?
Milo Roberts: That's me.
Jerry Mulligan: This is Paris, and I'm an American who lives here. My name is Jerry Mulligan, and I'm an ex G.I. In 1945 when the army told me to find my own job, I stayed on. And I'll tell you why: I'm a painter, and all my life that's all I've ever wanted to do.
Lise Bouvier: Maybe Paris has a way of making people forget.
Jerry Mulligan: Paris? No. Not this city. It's too real and too beautiful to ever let you forget anything.
Lise Bouvier: Jerry, don't let me leave you this way.
Jerry Mulligan: What gets me is, I don't know anything about her. We manage to be together for a few moments and then off she goes. Sometimes we have a wonderful time together and other times it's no fun at all. But I got to be with her.
Jerry Mulligan: Well, uh, with a binding like you've got, people are going to want to know what's in the book.
5 《花都艷舞》 -幕後花絮
Gene Kelly screened The Red Shoes (1948) for the MGM executives to persuade them to back a dance film.
Cyd Charisse discovered that she was pregnant during pre-production and was replaced by Leslie Caron.
This film was selected to the National Film Registry, Library of Congress, in 1993.
After Arthur Freed and Ira Gershwin reached an agreement during their weekly pool game, film rights to George Gershwin's "An American in Paris - A Tone Poem for Orchestra" were purchased for $158,750, and Ira received $56,250 as a consultant to write any necessary new lyrics for songs used.
Alan Jay Lerner began writing the screenplay in December 1949, and finished it in a 12-hour stretch in March(?) 1949 on the night before his wedding.
There was a break in production after 1 November 1950, at which point Gene Kelly began rehearsing the ballet choreography. By the time production for that final sequence resumed on 6 December, Vincente Minnelli had finished directing another film - Father's Little Dividend (1951).
Irene Sharaff designed a style for each of the ballet sequence sets, reflecting various French impressionist painters: Raoul Dufy (the Place de la Concorde), Edouard Manet (the flower market), Maurice Utrillo (a Paris street), Henri Rousseau (the fair), 'Vincent Van Gogh' (the Place de l'Opera), and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (the Moulin Rouge). The backgrounds took six weeks to build, with 30 painters working nonstop. Three filmed solo numbers were cut from the film: "I've Got a Crush on You" (Gene Kelly), and "Love Walked In" and "But Not For Me" (Georges Guétary).
According to Leslie Caron, her introductory dance sequence, which included a seductive dance with a chair, was considered too suggestive by some censors. Gene Kelly directed the brief fantasy dance sequences shown as Lise is introduced.
Gene Kelly directed the whole "Embraceable You" sequence.
reputed to be Gene Kelly's favorite of all his films.
6c The 17-minute dance sequence at the end took a month to film. It cost half a million dollars.
Gene Kelly discovered Leslie Caron while vacationing in Paris where he saw her perform in a ballet.
Leslie Caron had suffered from malnutrition during WWII and was not used to the rigorous schedule of filming a movie. Because she would tire so easily, she was only able to work every other day.
Oscar Levant, more of a pianist than an actor, signed onto the film because he was actually a friend of George Gershwin.
Arthur Freed originally just wanted to buy the rights to the Gershwin number "American in Paris," but Ira Gershwin made the condition that he'd only sell on the condition that if a musical were to use the song, it would use only Gershwin numbers as its other songs.
Despite the objections of Gene Kelly who wanted to shoot on location in Paris, the movie was shot at MGM Studios in California, on 44 sets built for the film. It was reportedly difficult for the studio to secure travel arrangements or locations for shooting. Two shots in the picture are from Paris, but they don't involve Kelly.
Even though Vincente Minnelli is credited as the sole director, he was sometimes tied up with his divorce from Judy Garland and other directing projects, leaving Gene Kelly to take over the directing duties.
Vincente Minnelli first wanted Maurice Chevalier in the Georges Guétary part, and 'Celeste Holm (I)' in the Nina Foch part. But Chevalier wasn't available; Minnelli was pleased with Foch's reading, and she got the part.
A scene in which Gene Kelly dances and sings "I've Got a Crush on You" while in his pajamas was filmed but did not make final cut. Kelly created a similar number with the song "All I Do Is Dream of You" for his next movie musical, Singin' in the Rain (1952), and it also ended up on the cutting room floor.
