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.

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

This is the truth.

How to cross the street in a Gene Kelly style.

Nope! He&#8217;s jumping through time to see me!

This is the song “Voodoo”, an outtake from The Pirate. Partly sung by Judy Garland, it was cut out from the final release. There’s no video from this scene but we can still try to imagine it by listening to the unreleased song.

Mayer told them to cut it out because the dance was too sexy.

I’d slap Mayer for making that decision if I could.

What is your favorite Gene Kelly film? (Mine's The Pirate.) asked by Anonymous

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.

Meet GENE KELLY

Four views of the new Library Lane mural in Ann Arbor – three with appropriate participation from nearby inanimate objects.

It’s a delightful mural.

To receive a kiss like that from Gene&#8230;.
