Invitation to The Dance
Rated
Gene Kelly's most ambitious film - but not, unhappily, his best: a trio of ballets, all choreographed by Kelly and all pitched in different keys and styles. The opener is a sort of bastardized Petrouchka crossbred with the more sentimental elements from Chaplin and Les Enfants du Paradis; the middle section - and it's a shame this one isn't better - is an Americanization of the Ophuls-Schnitzler sex roundelay La Ronde, scored by Andre Previn. Only at the end, when Kelly puts on his sailor suit and cuts capers with some "Arabian Nights" cartoons by Hanna-Barbera, do things really swing.
