Survey says: An American in Paris

Alan Jay Lerner's birthday was Monday (here) and as a follow up I checked with my musicals peeps. I thought My Fair Lady would be considered his greatest work, but instead a lot of love for An American in Paris.

I've never seen it, so I reserve my judgment and will reserve a copy on DVD from the library. I'll let you know how it goes...

(hmm, looks like he wrote the screenplay, but not the music since it's based on the music of George and Ira Gershwin... ah; details here)
