Summary
In this biography, Griffin, a writer and reviewer, traces the life and films of filmmaker Vincente Minelli (1903-1986), director of Meet Me in St. Louis, An American in Paris, and Gigi. Drawing from interviews with actors, colleagues, and friends (but neither of his daughters), Griffin recounts his childhood, unconventional upbringing, ambiguous sexuality, the autobiographical nature of his work, his work with famous actors, his many films, his family secrets, his marriages, including to Judy Garland, and his relationship with daughter Liza Minelli.
