A woman might give her heart and soul to Fred Astaire – but she saved her body for Gene Kelly.

This is the truth.
I love most of them for many reasons, so it’s hard to pick just one. My standard response is I love Singin’ in the Rain because it’s the greatest feel-good movie, but I also have a serious soft spot for Anchors Aweigh because JOE BRADY.
I love Gene. I love Jean. I want to see Gene remembered and respected. I want to see Jean take on great projects that allow him to show off his talent. Jean demonstrated in The Artist that he’s got a charm reminiscent of Gene. I would love to see my favorite French guy take a biopic of my favorite Old Hollywood guy, but I don’t believe he’s the right man for the job. I wish he was, but it’s more important to me to see a man with the right dancing skills and ability to pull off the accent accept the role.
