Werth & Wise are all agog at the Vincente Minnelli Film Festival that began at BAM last week and continues through November 2nd. Virtually every film from this prolific film master is being screened, and some include Q&A's and introductions from film historians and biographers. No film is left unturned in this collection of Minnelli classics including Werth & Wise favorites The Clock, Some Came Running, Tea and Sympathy, Father of the Bride, An American in Paris, Gigi, Madame Bovary, and the film that made him into one of the most sought after Hollywood directors, Meet Me in St. Louis. It's a rare opportunity to not only see some of Minnelli's most famous pictures as they were intended to be seen, but also to discover some of the less well-known gems that Minnelli crafted in his long directorial career. Who knows? Maybe you'll find yourself sitting next to Liza.
