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.

Frank Sinatra & Gene Kelly at The Hollywood Press Photographers’ Ball, 1949

When does Gene NOT have a five o’clock shadow? NO complaints here… :)

Oooo, a new one!

"If you knew Susie like we know Susie

 Oh oh oh what a gal                                                                                          

She’s not so choosy                                                                                            

no not our Susie                                                                                                

Susie is a lalabaloozie                                                                              

When Susie kisses it never fails                                                                    

When Susie kisses she takes the wind right out of your sails                          

So in conclusion                                                                                                

beware of Susion                                                                                                

Oh oh oh what a gal”

The very first McDonald’s, 1948 (via)

I still can’t get over fifteen cents for a hamburger.

Now that’s a McDonalds I’d be very happy to visit!

Laundry in the bathroom? People do that?

I’m really loving the red accent color.

I don’t know a single woman who wouldn’t hit me with something if I gave them Pyrex for Christmas.

Seriously, Santa. You should know me better than this. Let’s start over: If we’re going practical, getting rid of that mountain of student loan debt the size of Mt. Everest would be a FANTASTIC start.

Gene Kelly in The Pirate (1948)

I can never decide whether this is hot or not. Well, I guess at least you could say he has a talented mou…

Oh.

Although I’m sure I’d throw up in disgust if anyone else tried it, I’d gladly let Gene try it on me.

Fashionable dresses from the 1940s

Post 1951: When you see the way women dress these days, it’s no wonder there’s a 1940s revival going on.

A revival of 1940s fashion is ok by me!
