Pondering the mysteries of life

As I sat downstairs tonight, watching Funny Face and trying to do homework, one thought kept invading my mind, driving out all considerations of Gilded Age politics and John Calvin's influence on the American mind:

"Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly?"

This question has plagued me for years. I can't decide which one I prefer.

That should explain why this piece from Ziegfield Follies delighted me so much.

Actually, I was just bored and looking for something else to do.

Fred Astaire. Come on!

What a great clip! They're both incredible, but I have to vote with Emily! Definitely Astaire!

Adriane said...

Gene Kelly. Hands down.
