GENE KELLY TAP-DANCING ON ROLLER SKATES

What an amazing performer!
From the movie "It's Always Fair Weather" (1955)

I love that piece more than Singin' in the Rain. Haven't seen it in ages, thanks so much!

But you can also fast forward to 1980 when Gene Kelly roller skated in the disco inspired movie Xanadu. He was talented indeed.

If you never saw that movie , while pretty bad, it did feature Olivia Newton-John ; great music by ELO. and Gene Kelly.

What great talent. I saw some Michael Jackson moves in Gene's performance. Must have been an influence on MJ.

Awesome...too bad they don't make stars like this anymore. Gene Kelley was a master at what he did...

No helmet, knee pads, or elbow pads? GASP!

Fabulous.
