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 Kelly

I will always love this one, even though his scar was removed.

A fan outside MGM Studios likely captured this one. Pictured (we think) are Gene and his three assistants: Lois McClelland, Jeannie Coyne, and Carol Haney. (From rosyoutlook888’s personal collection.) http://ift.tt/1zfnstE

Hobnobbing with French actress Pascale Petit at the Cannes Film Festival (c. 1959). Shared by rosyoutlook888 on eBay. http://ift.tt/1ngSAVr

What body language

These two are flirting up a storm. What I wouldn’t do to receive this sort of attention from him!

With a bobby-soxer (and a cap with a really high bill!)) on the set of Living in a Big Way. (From the personal collection of rosyoutlook888.) http://ift.tt/1zYFIsP

I can’t get over the adorableness of this photo.

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. :-)

I’m enjoying the wrinkles in his face.

I don’t know how some girls are 100% straight like have you seen girls

Have you seen some guys

In general, women are pretty darn beautiful, but when you have a hot man, you have a HOT man.

It is a CRYIN’ SHAME this scene isn’t longer.

"J’ai le Gene Kelly" by Enzo Enzo.

Qu’importe, ce matin,
Le mauvais goût du café
La radio du voisin
La vaisselle dans l’évier,
C’est un jour sans réalité.
Pourtant je suis le même
Qu’hier, dans le même pays
Mais les drames de la veille
Semblent des comédies
Simplement, aujourd’hui,
J’ai le Gene Kelly

Donnez-moi vos tracas, vos soucis,
Profitez-en quand j’ai le Gene Kelly
Couvrez-moi de problèmes et de pluie
Car aujourd’hui, moi, j’ai le Gene Kelly

Ce n’est pas du courage
Ni même de l’inconscience
Ni les leçons de l’âge
Ni celles d’une science
Simplement ma raison
Qui prend des vacances

Le cafard, la colère, le mépris,
Je m’en balance quand j’ai le Gene Kelly
Laissez-moi me tremper sous vos pluies
Tout en chantant que j’ai le Gene Kelly

Surtout ne pas savoir pendant combien de temps
Peut bien durer ce jour
Avant que ne revienne le désert ambulant
D’une journée sans amour

Les journées sans amour
Ont des couteaux dans les poches
Et des yeux tout autour
Qui ne voient que du moche,
Le regard perclu d’un reproche,
Aussi, quand se ramènent
En pointillé pétillant
Les douceurs aériennes
D’un réveil indulgent,
Sans calcul, sans compter
Sans arrière-pensées

Donnez-moi vos tracas, vos soucis,
Profitez-en quand j’ai le Gene Kelly
Couvrez-moi de problèmes et de pluie
Car aujourd’hui moi j’ai le Gene Kelly
Le cafard, la colère, le mépris,
Je m’en balance quand j’ai le Gene Kelly
Laissez-moi me tremper sous vos pluies
Tout en chantant que j’ai le Gene Kelly
Gene Kelly
J’ai le Gene Kelly


Shhh… I don’t have permission to use this under the terms of service.  Don’t tell anyone.  But I wanted others to hear it, and there’s just no finding this elsewhere.   

So, it seems I “liked” this post a few years ago, but I’m now just getting around to reblogging it. My friend Jen had to remind me of it. Isn’t it adorable?

Asecretgentleman, are you familiar with this song?

Don’t let those neighborhood bullies get you down, Gene. You’ve got a great future ahead of you.
