“We had the best of times, and I think it was because we all thought we were trying to create some kind of magic and joy. And you know, that’s what you do [onscreen]. You dance love, and you dance joy, and you dance dreams. And I know if I can make you smile by jumping over a couple of couches, or running through a rainstorm, then I’ll be very glad to be a song and dance man; and I won’t worry anymore that the Pittsburg Pirates lost a hell of a shortstop.”
Happy Birthday, Gene Kelly! (August 23rd, 1912 - February 2nd, 1996)
