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.

Gene’s Girls, where are you?

Bérénice Bejo as Peppy Miller in The Artist. 

MUST. SEE. THIS. MOVIE.

I second that.
I’d do this if I ever owned one of Gene’s jackets. And the same goes for one of Jean Dujardin’s jackets now, too.
