Widely admired for his flamboyant sense of color and camera movement, Minnelli played a crucial role in maintaining the studios reputation as the home of the stars.

As well as describing the directors contributions to some of the most celebrated works of Hollywoods classic era, this volume includes a close analysis of five important films that represent the full range of Minnellis career: Cabin in the Sky, Meet Me in St. Louis, Father of the Bride, The Bad and the Beautiful, and Lust for Life. These lively readings provide commentary on problems of genre, directorial style, cultural politics, and the connection between aestheticism and mass culture during the first half of the twentieth century.
