director: vincente minnelli

In addition to having directed some of the most famous and well-remembered musicals of his time, Minnelli made many comedies and melodramas. He was married to Judy Garland from 1945 until 1951; they were the parents of Liza Minnelli.

He's most well known for Meet Me in St. Louis, Gigi, and An American in Paris, but he also directed The Reluctant Debutante, The Clock, and Father of the Bride.

On a Clear Day You Can See Forever
Daisy Gamble, an unusual woman who hears phones before they ring and does wonders with her flowers, wants to quit smoking to please her finacee, Warren. She goes to a doctor of hypnosis to do it. But once she's under, her doctor finds out that she can regress into past lives and different personalities, and he finds himself falling in love with one of them.

Bells Are Ringing
Ella Peterson is a Brooklyn telephone answering service operator who tries to improve the lives of her clients by passing along bits of information she hears from other clients. She falls in love with one of her clients, the playwright Jeffrey Moss, and is determined to meet him. The trouble is, he only knows here as an old woman whom he calls "Mom."

Weary of the conventions of Parisian society, a rich playboy and a youthful courtesan-in-training enjoy a platonic friendship...but it may not stay platonic for long.

The Band Wagon
A pretentiously artistic director is hired for a new Broadway musical and changes it beyond recognition.
