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.

Are you a Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire kinda person?

Everyone should know which one is my favorite. But this doesn’t mean that I don’t have a ton of admiration for the other one. :-)

Gene dancing with his first wife, Betsy.
*sigh*

Wow. I’m surprised this is the first time I’ve seen this one. It should be more well known.

GENE KELLY, PLEASE COME BACK TO LIFE AND VISIT ME.
I want to admire those lovely tanned biceps of yours and make your eyes crinkle and kiss that scar on your cheek and watch you tap circles around me.
WHY CAN’T MEN LIKE THIS EXIST TODAY?!?!
