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.

Devil’s Knot (dir. Atom Egoyan, 2014) [x]

Before there was PTSD there was shell shock and combat fatigue and Gene Kelly’s Combat Fatigue Irritability.”

Meet Me in St. Louis

How appropriate that yours would star Judy and mine, Singin’ in the Rain, would star Gene.

Things I Need I My Life → A romance film set in the 1940’s, starring Marion Cotillard and Jean Dujardin

So this is the film she did for which she dyed her hair.  I didn’t know it was a  period piece. I’d like to see it.
