Gene Kelly

Today we celebrate 100 years of American Master Gene Kelly. His wife of sixteen years, Betsy Blair, talks about Kelly’s legacy in an audio clip from our film, Gene Kelly: Anatomy of a Dancer. Kelly echoes Blair’s words, saying, “We all thought we were trying to create some kind of magic of joy. That’s what you do up there. You dance love and you dance joy and you dance dreams.”
