Personal Quote:

[on Gene Kelly] He had plenty of ginger but no Ginger: although he danced affectionately with Leslie Caron, amusingly with Debbie Reynolds, snappily with Judy Garland, bouncily with Rita Hayworth, broodily with Vera-Ellen, and respectfully with statuesque, stony-faced Cyd Charisse, we think of Gene Kelly as a guy in loafers and a tight T-shirt tap-dancing up a storm.

Inducted into the Beverly [Massachusetts] Hall of Fame in 1982. See more »
