Three friends struggle to find work in Paris. Things become more complicated when two of them fall in love with the same woman.
According to Leslie Caron, her introductory dance sequence, which included a seductive dance with a chair, was considered too suggestive by some censors. Gene Kelly directed the brief fantasy dance sequences shown as Lise is introduced.
This is Paris, and I'm an American who lives here. My name is Jerry Mulligan, and I'm an ex G.I. In 1945 when the army told me to find my own job, I stayed on. And I'll tell you why: I'm a painter, and all my life that's all I've ever wanted to do.
When Gene Kelly is painting Lise's portrait, she poses with a red carnation in her hand. When they lean in to embrace the carnation falls on the ground and is momentarily out of view. He bends to pick it up, but it's no longer a carnation but a red rose. The difference is quite obvious in the flower petal arrangements.
