The Band Wagon in 35mm

Duration: 112 Rated G Director: Vincente Minnelli
The Band Wagon

Vincente Minnelli’s The Band Wagon centers on a musical movie star (Fred Astaire) who fears his career is about to hit the skids, until two friends (Oscar Levant and Nanette Fabray) write a script for him that becomes Broadway-bound. But just as things begin to look promising, an egotistical director (Jack Buchanan) joins the project and casts ballerina Gaby Gerard (Cyd Charisse) as the leading lady. Tensions rise between the two co-stars, who clash immediately—and whose temperaments threaten to capsize the show—in this timeless classic of the backstage romantic musical genre.

The Band Wagon is screening in 35mm with Gilda (4K) as part of our Tale of Two Studios double feature series.
