They Shot Pictures Ep#30: Vincente Minnelli Musicals


On part 1 of this two-parter, Jhon, Sean and Seema discuss the lush musicals of Vincente Minnelli. We center our discussion around the films The Pirate (1948), The Band Wagon (1953) and Gigi (1958). We have one rather exhausted and drowsy host and if you’re lucky the editing still left in some of Sean’s interstitial singing!

On a follow-up to this episode, we will be discussing Minnelli’s melodramas.

Jhon writes about a variety of visual media including anime and manga on his blog. He also really would love for you to reach out to him about all things cinematic on twitter, @cruyffbedroom.

Sean writes about all things film on his blog and is also on twitter @theendofcinema.

Seema is also on twitter @wormatwork
