Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

"The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past." - Robertson Davies, A Voice from the Attic

I'm Kelly; lover of the 1940s, Gene Kelly, and Jesus. This blog is devoted to early 20th Century history, period dramas, Doctor Who, and my sexy French lover, Jean Dujardin.

Being kind isn’t always easy. Or convenient. But it has the potential to change everything.

This is actually 100% true for me right now.  This is an amazing Meme of Truth! 

I’m not much of a dancer, but I guess I’ll take Jean’s word for it if he’ll be my partner.

This is the song “Voodoo”, an outtake from The Pirate. Partly sung by Judy Garland, it was cut out from the final release. There’s no video from this scene but we can still try to imagine it by listening to the unreleased song.

Mayer told them to cut it out because the dance was too sexy.

I’d slap Mayer for making that decision if I could.

You are most welcome! I love sharing Jean with everyone.

Singin' in the Rain or The Artist? asked by Anonymous

I love The Artist, I really do. I love the homage to Old Hollywood. I love that they dared make such a charming, vintage-styled silent film that was guaranteed to be the underdog. It caught my heart and imagination from the moment I laid my eyes on the trailer.

But…… Singin’ in the Rain is a complete masterpiece that has stood the test of time. I love it from beginning to end. It’s a film everyone should see at least once.

Dujardin du Jour
Yes, Peppy, you are one lucky girl. You don’t have to rub it in that you’re dancing with the most handsome movie star of the era.
