Storyline

A look at the life, the work, and the contributions of Gene Kelly to movies and movie making. The film celebrates Kelly's putting story-telling into dance and discovering, along with Martha Graham and Jerome Robbins, an American style. It examines his partnership with Stanley Dolan, his bringing of tap and ballet into musicals, his marriages and personal competitiveness, his political views, and his work on stage as well as in film. This production details his contributions as a dancer, choreographer, and director. The narration and talking heads also discuss his muscular style, his low center of gravity, and his masculine appeal. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great documentary!
1 July 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If you want clips of all of Kelly's best musicals, and commentary from some of the actors he worked with, then this is for you. It's basically a fun timeline of his movie career, as well as a little private life info, and well worth it for any fan to catch. Features interviews with Cyd Charisse, Leslie Caron, Betty Garrett, Betsy Blair, and old footage of Gene himself.
