The Pirate

Sunday, December 13, 2015, 2 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(Vincente Minnelli, US 1948, 102 min., 35mm)

Vincente and Judy. On a Caribbean Island in the 1820s, native girl Judy Garland fantasizes about a notorious pirate named Macoco, whom strolling minstrel Gene Kelly impersonates to win her heart. Minnelli’s lavish, old-fashioned MGM musical is dripping with lush color, festooned with magnificent sets and costumes, and peppered with swirling Cole Porter numbers like “Be a Clown” and “Mack the Black.”
