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.

Here ya go, Kelly!  It’s the cutest video of a little ghost girl dancing with a pair of possessed spectators to the refrain of “Moses Supposes” from  Singin’ in the Rain...

:D

Aww, this is cute. Why a ghost girl? That’s a bit odd, but I loved all the props from the movie.

Singin’ in the Rain (1952)

I want Don Lockwood to jump into my car (nevermind the fact that I don’t own a convertible) and try to seduce me. Of course, Jesus would have to take the wheel in the case of this glorious event because there would be no more focusing on the road for me.

THE BROADWAY MELODY BALLET
→ from Singin’ in the Rain (1952)

a million lights, they flicker there
a million hearts beat quicker there
no skies of grey on that great white way
that’s the broadway melody

Singin’ in the Rain would’ve been such a different movie if it had been in B&W. God bless Technicolor.

I’ve never paid much attention to Cosmo’s reaction. This is GOLD.

It just occurred to me that this could be a nice screen for my phone. I suppose it’s about time to change the Christmas backgrounds.

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN saved me from killing myself.

Wow. I think this is a testament to the movie&#8217;s &#8220;joie de vivre.&#8221; There is so much joy to take from it. I do hope that you, anon, have taken this joy and used it to find more to appreciate about this life we&#8217;ve been given.
