Yolanda and the Thief
Dir. Vincente Minnelli (1945). Mise-en-scene is everything in this curiously static, nominally Good Neighbor MGM musical. The lengthy production numbers are animated only by Fred Astaire, although the eye keeps wandering to the sets, self-consciously modeled on Dali and De Chirico.
