BELLS ARE RINGING
Minnelli | 1960 | US | 126m
*Q&A w/ Joe McElhaney & Emmanuel Burdeau
“The Complete Vincente Minnelli”
6:50*, 9:30 at BAM

“One of my favorite oddball musicals. Part of what’s so refreshing and singular about this winning Judy Holliday vehicle is how socially progressive it is. The famous team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green (Singin’ in the Rain) wrote this and Jule Styne supplied the terrific tunes. As usual, Minnelli knows how to get the most out of CinemaScope framing, taking the story’s utopian notion of social interaction and literally stretching it out visually.”
Jonathan Rosenbaum, DVDBeaver [Read More]
