Busan Cinematheque Brings Back Glory Days of Hollywood


Where: Busan Cinematheque

When: June 8-22

The golden age of Hollywood is easily one of my favorite periods in the history of cinema, when the likes of Billy Wilder, Preston Sturges, William Wyler, and Howard Hawks flourished under the old studio system. This month, the Busan cinematheque is running a retrospective in honor of another director whose name has become synonymous with the glitz and glamour of this prolific era in film. Vincent Minelli is most famous for his musicals, particularly “Meet Me in St Louis” with Judy Garland and “An American in Paris” with Gene Kelly; but not being too fond of the genre, I’m much more intent on seeing some of the films he made where the actors don’t burst into a song and dance number every other scene.

In English with Korean Subtitles:

Meet Me in St Louis (1944)

Yolanda and the Thief (1945)

The Pirate (1948)

An American in Paris (1951)

The Bad and the Beautiful (1952)

The Band Wagon (1953)

Lust for Life (1956)

Tea and Sympathy (1956)

Designing Woman (1957)

Gigi (1958)

Home from the Hill (1960)

Two Weeks in Another Town (1962)
