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.

"If you knew Susie like we know Susie

 Oh oh oh what a gal                                                                                          

She’s not so choosy                                                                                            

no not our Susie                                                                                                

Susie is a lalabaloozie                                                                              

When Susie kisses it never fails                                                                    

When Susie kisses she takes the wind right out of your sails                          

So in conclusion                                                                                                

beware of Susion                                                                                                

Oh oh oh what a gal”

Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly in Take Me Out to the Ball Game, 1949.

And this when I admire Gene’s forearms.

There is just nothing in this world funnier than Cary’s big gorgeous pumpkin of a head bouncing around in front of Ingrid Bergman who’s barely concealing her desire to laugh.

I really can’t stop watching this. It’s just so hilarious.

I friggin’ love Old Hollywood, man. You just can’t write this kind of stuff now.

"For the joy of having a child, I’d eliminate a lot of freedom."

– Gene Kelly, TV Radio Mirror – November 1962

Wow…and I thought I couldn’t love him any more…

He was so cute with his kids.

Gene Kelly in The Pirate (1948)

I can never decide whether this is hot or not. Well, I guess at least you could say he has a talented mou…

Oh.

Although I’m sure I’d throw up in disgust if anyone else tried it, I’d gladly let Gene try it on me.
