Following on from a comment on the postcard post I just posted (hahah), I agree, I WOULD love to travel back in time. And make out with Gene Kelly. He's so magnetic to me!!
He epitomises for me a proper hollywood star! He could sing and dance and act and he was pretty.
Thinking about it now, I think he has to be the only reason I have a thing about Navy uniforms and those giant white trousers. And those tight 50s shirts! *sigh* I mean look at that picture where he's wearing chinos that are like, rolled up. Noone else could not look like a tool wearing that, but he just looks so cool!
and omg i just found this awesome clip on youtube where he dances with this ghost mirror version of himself. its so amaxing! how did he stay in sync?!
Hahah this clip is long and insane. Fred Astaire is kind of a better dancer than Gene but Gene always has this kind of gentrified beefcake thing. Fred is just too skinny and fey seeming to be sexy.
