Cloudy With a Chance of Romance: A Cloudy, Fall Sky in Paris

 Along the Seine

"A cloudy day in Paris beats a sunny day almost anywhere." - Moi

On my recent trip, we walked along the Seine many times. I took the photo of the boats on the Seine while we walked along the path where I thought Gene Kelly danced with Leslie Caron in "An American in Paris." 

Turns out, the movie wasn't even shot in France! Practically the entire film (except for just a handful of shots) was done on a back-lot at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio in Hollywood, California. !! (To read more, visit http://geneius.webs.com/thisstarcalledparis.htm.)

Oui! Agreed!

From the BBC series on Paris, Blood and Chocolate (Part 2 of 3). Enjoy!
