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.

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.

Eugene “Gene” Curran Kelly  (August 23, 1912 - February 2, 1996)

Happy 100th, Gene.

What a nice tribute, Courtney!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
UGH
STOP

Mmmmm.
Did he realize that he was being sensual when he did these little things?  Might have been his little way to get sexy things into these post-code movies.

First time I saw this scene, I just couldn’t help but stare at his hand on the mouthpiece. I have never wanted to be an inanimate object so badly in my LIFE.
And I’d almost guarantee he knew—remember he did the choreography for “Voodoo”—we all know what happened to THAT little sucker…

remember what that dancer said on the Pirate commentary “Gene was an intensely sexual person”…
I’ve not watched the commentary.  Maybe I should.

I wouldn’t believe for one minute Gene didn’t know what he was doing as he stroked the phone.

Filming “Voodoo” for The Pirate, a number so steamy that Louis B. Mayer had the print burned. Dammit.

I could just kick Mayer for doing that.

Oh.

If a man was dressed like this and swooped into your life, you’d just swoon into his arms, no?

That outfit isn’t my favorite, but I’d still swoon in his case.

Generally I do not condone smoking but this is rather provocative Mr. Kelly

Swoon

The only man I’d allow to blow cigarette smoke in my face.

His face is adorable. I’m considering it for my new icon…should I?
Absolutely!

Why do those women have such disapproving looks on their faces?
