Gene Kelly turns 100 today!

Hurry!  Turn on TCM!!!  They are having a 24 hour marathon in remembrance of Gene Kelly and we all must devote today to viewing it!  Yes, today would have been the 100th birthday of the legendary performer, and sadly I don’t think I’m the only one who is staggeringly UNDER-educated in his filmography.  Of all his films, I’ve only seen four.  Can you believe that?  Granted, the four that I’ve seen (‘An American in Paris’, ‘Singing in the Rain’, ‘Les Girls’ and ‘What a Way to Go’) are great films and all offer up great Kelly performances, but he was in so many classics and I’m ashamed to not have seen them.  So, my DVR is set to cement Kelly in my memory forever.  What film should I be most excited about seeing?

  1. I think the only Kelly films I've seen are Singin' in the Rain and An American in Paris. Must catch up on his work.
