Gene Kelly's Birthday Tribute

This weekend I enjoyed thumbing through all the social media tributes for Gene Kelly, as his birthday fell on August 23. Perhaps Gene Kelly is on everyone's mind these days, with both An American in Paris and On The Town both playing on Broadway.

I had no idea there were so many fan sites and trivia postings about Gene, right down to the scar on his cheek and how it got there.

Probably the most fascinating clip I saw over the weekend was the outtake from Singin In the Rain, when the stuntman falls of the trolley car. The clip seems to surface on YouTube every now and again, only to disappear moments later.

Happy Birthiday Gene Kelly!
