    Invitation to the Dance

    The "Mad Max: Fury Road" of musicals.

    Gene Kelly, at the height of his fame and power, decides to take studio money to make a completely wordless musical in three parts, telling three distinct stories though dance and pantomime (but mostly dance). No doubt people at the time saw it as an ego-driven exercise in futility, but with hindsight, it is quite possibly the most daring of Kelly's creations, the auteurist pendant to his mainstream masterpiece Singing in the Rain.…
