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.

I loved these two together.

Call the midwife is legitimately one of the best shows I’ve ever watched and yet there doesn’t seem to be much of a fandom for it….please reblog this post if you are in the fandom.

I’ve just started the third season. It’s a wonderful, heartwarming show.

I’m so glad Manitoba as my next door neighbor.

I agree with you in the respect that Jean DuJardin could not pull off the accent or properly execute Gene's dancing style, but I meant I wanted a biopic because the two look quite similar haha. I don't think we'll ever find someone perfect enough to fit the role of playing as Gene. The looks, charm, accent, talent, and presence are too rare to be found in one person. (; asked by eugeneskelly

Yes. If we were to ever find someone appropriate for playing Gene, I imagine he would have to come from Broadway. He would most certainly need to be a “triple threat.”

I never tire of the comparisons between these two fellows, though. I love that I can see hints of Gene in Jean. I love that they look somewhat alike!
