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 waiting on the set
Young Girls of Rochefort (1967)

I find it interesting that he chose to sit on the ground rather than in a chair.

Gene Kelly on set with Walter Matthau

His smile is just devastating…

The glasses are in his hand. IN HIS HAND! Why, photographer, did you not snap this photo a moment sooner?

So, if I ever get my hands on that TARDIS, I’m also heading back to watch Gene put this masterpiece together.

Take me too!

Of course. I’ll need you to help me operate it. I’d probably end up taking a “wrong turn” if I was alone.

Doris and Gene Kelly on the set of ‘The Tunnel Of Love”, 1958.

I swear it is some sort of conspiracy. Is there not a picture out there of Gene looking at the camera while wearing those glasses?
