AFS @ Marchesa Celebration Screening: The Band Wagon
Not rated, 111 min. Directed by Vincente Minnelli. Starring Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse, Oscar Levant, Nanette Fabray and Jack Buchanan.
Many astute people consider this witty backstage tale the greatest of all Minnelli's great musicals. Sublime performances, great musical numbers, and an inspired Betty Comden and Adolph Green script are the glue that holds together Minnelli's most masterful fusion of form, content, and froth. Richard Linklater will introduce the film. Read a full review of The Band Wagon.No current showings of this film.
