Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:


Jerry: Civilization has a natural resistance to improving itself.

Director Vincente Minnelli was born 115 years ago today! 
Without him there'd be no Liza, and there'd be no... 

 ... Gene Kelly shaking his ass in those pants, 
so show some damn respect.

What's your favorite Minnelli movie?

I know I should say Meet Me in St. Louis which is a fine film but I prefer his late 50's trio of The Reluctant Debutante, Some Came Running and Home from the Hill.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the fever dream that is The Pirate but while its a mad film it's not one that I'd place in my top five of his films.

I have several favorite Minnelli films: I think Judy gives one of her best performances in The Clock, Meet Me in St. Louis is always a treat and Gigi is one of the greatest uses of Paris ever put on film. However, I think Some Came Running is good, Lust for Life is an extraordinary film and On a Clear Day is beautiful.
