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.

What I (and you and a bunch of other ladies around here) wouldn’t give to be that mop…

I don’t know what would be better: to be the mop or the telephone in Anchors Aweigh. Gene dances with the mop, but he strokes (strokes!) the phone.
