Invitation to the Dance (1956)|
Master set-up of Gene Kelly.
Invitation to the Dance is a 1956 anthology film consisting of three distinct stories, all starring and directed by Gene Kelly. This cel from the third act, “Sinbad the Sailor”, features a live action Kelly with an animated dancer and another live action pal. The movie was filmed in 1952, but its release was delayed until 1956 because of doubts at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer about its commercial viability. The movie was a failure at the box office, but is regarded today as a landmark all-dance film.
