Wow! Tons of posts for Mr. Kelly…very nice.


That shot above is from my favorite Gene Kelly movie of all! I cry at the end of An American in Paris everytime, too! When they race on those steps… thanks for that!

Reply Here’s an archived post I did as part of a report from this year’s TCM Film Festival…it details the wonderful wardrobe from COVER GIRL, but also tells a lot about Gene from the lips of his biggest cheerleader, Patricia Kelly! Enjoy!

Talk to me!
