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 always wanted to wear tight-fitting clothes so that they would show off the lines of his body as he danced. I thank him for that.

Also, thanks to Gene, I’ve got a thing for sailors.

I’m dancing and singing in the rain……

How have I not seen this until today?

It was new to me, too! I tell you, my face kind of hurts after smiling for 3 minutes and 26 seconds straight.

It’s so fun to watch him dance for a moment in this movie. “You’re the best dancer in this place!” Ha!

Football is not a contact sport.  It’s a collision sport.  Dancing is a good example of a contact sport.  
~Duffy Daugherty

It’s true and I think Gene would agree with me.

Wanna dance with Buster and me?

I may not be able to pull off Gene’s moves, but I certainly could imitate Buster.
