Gene Kelly

GENE KELLY (1912-1996), born Eugene Curran Kelly

Singin' in the Rain (1952)

Haven't you seen Singin' in the Rain (1952)? - the ultimate film!

Watch this and then see these other four films.

An American in Paris (1951) - He's simply fantastic!
Summer Stock (1950) - Even though Judy gets most of the publicity for this movie, Gene did a marvelous job.
Brigadoon (1954) "Almost Like Being in Love" alone is worth the time it takes to watch the whole movie!
On the Town (1949) - It's just really cute, and like always, Gene is sweet.
