Gene Kelly hits the happy road to Paris, love and laughter! The Hollywood icon – the creative force behind Singin’ in the Rain, An American in Paris and more musical landmarks – produces, directors and stars in a winning family comedy about two single parents who team up in pursuit of their respective children, runaways from a posh Swiss boarding school. Never fear: after many mix-ups, the parents find their offspring and romance. Michael Redgrave cameos as a can-do NATO officer whose troops join the search. “Lively and charming… an amusing lot of comic complications,” cheered Bosley Crowther in the New York Times, who noted that “Mr. Kelly is outstanding… functioning most effectively in each of his roles – as actor, producer and director, but particularly as a propagandist for brotherly love.” Filmed on location and bright with joie de vivre, the Happy Road won a 1958 Golden Globe as Best Film Promoting International Understanding.
