Quote of the Week

What is always most difficult in musicals is the bridge from dialogue to music. In the old musicals, they just said, "I love you" and started singing. Finally, the public said, "This isn't real.". . .You have to stay in character or come out of that character in some kind of fantasy way, but not lose the character.

  1. Ooh, Gene Kelly. I think he was rather underrated as an all around talent. I'd liked him better than Fred. There, I said it. : )

  2. I was all about Kelly for a while myself. Then I went back to Astaire. I have the feeling I'll being going back and forth like that depending on where I am in my life. Kelly was definitely a more accomplished actor.
