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.

Singin’ in the Rain (1952)

They wore same raincoats, held same umbrellas, and walk the same way…!!

I hadn’t seen this clip before. Thanks for sharing!

Imagine being in that crowd. It doesn’t matter that I’ve seen it countless times; I’d still be excited.

These are awesome, Courtney! I must know who who that man is in the white shirt in the last two. I’m not positive it’s Gene.
