The music -- singing and dancing -- was fine, but the segues from action to music often/almost always8 seemed forced -- not smooth or natural. The TCM announcer said it was the best musical ever. No. Certainly not better than Meet Me In St. Louis, Singing in the Rain, or even Thoroughly Modern Milly. I had seen A in P several years ago. I didn't remember that Gene Kelly's character was such an arrogant jerk. Leslie Caron's character was that of an immature, disingenuous child. At the end of the movie, TCM & Fathom Events comments/info were THE end of the show. There were no ending credits.
I love Gene Kelly and this is one of his great films!!
