You know when you were a kid and you were staying at your Grandma’s and she’d watch loads of old movies like Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, and tell you looooong anecdotes about what she was doing when the film came out? I used to love that. Particularly if the film happened to be Singin’ In The Rain or On The Town as it meant I got to sit for hours, mesmerised by Gene Kelly. Probably the most athletically masculine dancer in a musical film ever seen, Gene here also happened to look pleasingly like a Sicilian mechanic in a Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign. Check out the nonchalant way he rocks that grey-marl in the photo above . . .
