Description

Eugene Curran Kelly was known in Hollywood as a truly multi-talented performer. He was a dancer, an actor, a director, and a choreographer.  On screen, he delighted fans with his dancing skill and his likeability. Kelly was famous for his ability to perform a wide variety of dancing styles wearing ordinary, everyday clothing. Kelly once said he looked like a “truck driver” in a tux, so he didn’t wear them. Among his Hollywood peers, his reputation varied. Some dancing partners considered Kelly a perfectionist taskmaster and others thought him kind and considerate. Come and join us and we will discover the professional and little known personal life of the remarkable movie star and dancer Gene Kelly. Clips will be shown.
