NOTES

"Where Fred Astaire glided across shiny dance floors, Gene Kelly bounced. Where Fred tapped, Gene stomped. Where Fred was an airy continental concoction, Gene was an all-American jock--and his rise to stardom revitalized the movie musical. Kelly's apotheosis came when he sang "Singin' in the Rain". ... High-voiced and easy, alone in the patently fake downpour of a studio set, Kelly reveled in the plastic bliss of a world where one can breathe out one's longings in song and dance." --From Entertainment Weekly, January 10, 1992.

He was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame (1992)
