Creativity and Vincente Minnelli

On his blog A Hundred or More Hidden Things: The Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli, Mark Griffin posts his interview with Michael E. Grost, a film historian and self-described “citizen scholar” whose website explores visual and thematic links in the films of film auteurs like Fritz Lang, George Cukor, and Akira Kurosawa.

In this interview, Griffin and Grost consider what the latter calls “the seemingly endless use of creativity in Minnelli’s moves.”

There is only one reference to Gene Kelly (and An American in Paris) here, but any fan of Gene is likely a fan of Minnelli’s, right? If so, read on: “Citizen Scholar: Michael E. Grost on the Minnelli Factor.
