“In pre-WW2 days, Isaly’s was the place to go for chipped pressed ham and for their large ice cream cones, after movies and shopping in East Liberty. But above all, I remember the Squirrel Hill store at Forbes and Murray, immediately above which was one of the locations in the Thirties of The Gene Kelly Dance Studio. My sister and I had weekly lessons there and before taking the #60 street car back to East Liberty, we always bought a Klondike and immediately looked to see if ours had a strawberry center which would get us a coupon for a free Klondkie on our next visit. For a while, Gene had us perform at local theaters on Saturday mornings and we were called Gene Kelly’s Brother and Sister Team.” -Fred G. Baur
My Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit tumblr. It’s mostly just reblogs thus far, but I did make the banner…kinda proud of that.
Thank you very much! That’s nice to hear :) And I just looked your drawing up, it’s very nice! You did quite well! Better than I could ever do :P Therefore, I disagree with you! I think it’s quite good :)
To all the Gene girls who are watching/recording TCM today… I do not recommend watching For Me and My Gal and That’s Entertainment III in the same day.
I did last year (back to back, though) and cried my eyes out.
Today was the first time I ever watched TE III and my family was making fun of me so bad because I just balled when I saw Gene…especially that last bit…I lost it :(
You have made me very happy today. Giving me Gene in a continuous play is fantastic.
Gene Kelly is like my perfect idea of a husband; a great dancer, amazing singer, a beautiful smile, amazing eyes, GREAT muscular build, just….everything.
omg…this has been the best day ever
Trying to teach myself to play “For Me and My Gal” on piano….frustrating considering I have no experience with pianos.
