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.

Evil film noir Gene Kelly—up to 30% hotter than even regular Gene Kelly. From Christmas Holiday (1944), a very unusually cast noir, about which I wrote a blog post

I need to watch this one again.

Mmm. It’s nice to put a handsome face to a name.

Two of my favorite gifs of him. I tend to focus so much on Gene in the second one that I tend to miss the ghost of Oscar Levant’s hands.

Daniel Tohill, age 27, 1908. Mugshot via the New Zealand Police Museum. Tohill was acquitted of stealing a bicycle but found guilty and sentenced to four months hard labor in prison for stealing a fur necklet.
This married father of three had two previous convictions, which included stealing from a railway shed and nabbing two ferrets. 

My my, he’s handsome.

Jean Dujardin is the modern-day incarnate of Gene Kelly. Forget the fact that Gene Kelly was still alive when Dujardin was born. Math is irrelevant when men are this handsome. Love.

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen my two favorites in one post. As much as I like Jean, I can’t call him a modern-day incarnate of Gene. I love the similarities that are there (they aren’t my two favorites for nothing), but Gene stands alone.

Eugene Curran Kelly (23 August 1912 - 2 February 1996)

Happy 100th Birthday to a phenomenal actor, dancer, singer, director, choreographer and all around great man. You brighten up any movie screen that graces us with your presence and bring such joy into our lives. Thank you, Mr. Kelly, for giving us our own glorious feeling.

I’ll never argue with Gene spam.
