Liza & Vincente Minnelli on the set of "An American In Paris"...

Mark Griffin, author of the Vincente Minnelli biography released earlier this entitled A Hundred or More Hidden Things: The Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli ( http://www.amazon.com/Hundred-More-Hidden-Things-Vincente/dp/0786720999 ) posted some additional quotes on his blog from some of the interviews he conducted for the book. One is from MGM dancer Marian Horosko recalling filming the ballet sequence of An American in Paris:


“When I first went on the set, we were shooting the Place de la Concorde scene and Vincente Minnelli was very high up on the boom – looking down at all of us – and in his lap was this little girl with these great big eyes and she was fascinated. And that was Liza. And actually, I have to admit, we played to her. She looked like four or five, maybe. You know, on the set you usually don’t have an audience but here was this child who was very interested in everything we were doing. Having Liza with him was a big treat for us and he was very pleased that she liked what she saw…She wasn’t a kid who just looked at it like a circus. She somehow got into it. I think her talent was blossoming or just forming at that point and even at that early age, she saw where she wanted to go.”
