"Singing in the Rain"

last nite I was thinking abt Gene Kelly.

these 4 minutes are one of the great poems in the history of film. (& yes that is Snub Pollard who receives the umbrella from Kelly at the very end.)

this morning I discoverd this video.

the dancer on this British talent show is George Sampson & he's all of 14. what I like abt this is that the young dare to challenge us. take a great sonnet & remix it. that doesn't diminish the sonnet. it reinforces its greatness.

I saw this yesterday, as well. I though Gene might very well be the first to applaud this guy.
