Crest of the Waves
I have only seen the trailer for this movie. It seems to be the best kept secret in town. It appears to be taken out of moth balls every 5 years or so. Hense, it's easy to miss. I love all Gene Kelly movies and own quite a collection of his work. I would love to add this to my collection, or at least be able to see it. Why is it kept under wraps?
NOW THAT'S HOW A MAN SHOULD LOOK IN UNIFORM!!!
Thank you TCM for airing Crest Of The Wave on 12/12/07. I had requested several times that you show it, and as I am sure that I'm not the only one who probably requested it, I do so greatly appreciate your airing it! I really liked this movie, as is the case with all of GENE KELLY'S movies. sure, okay, yeah it's mainly because of GENE, but also because he does such a great job in this movie as he did with all of his roles. I view this as a soft drama, but GENE adds so much character to the movie. I love the scene where he was receiving the cold shoulder from the British men during breakfast, and they don't warn him about the, (as I would assume), HOT! sausages. His reaction to the sip of coffee tells that it tasted awful, then on top of that, to eat a hot (or nasty tasting) sausage. I rewind and watch his reaction in that scene over and over. I love it! His reactions were so natural and hilarious!! Then not to mention how absolutely, positively gorgeous he looked in his Lieutenant's uniform. I guess it wouldn't matter what kind of movie it was, as long as GENE KELLY is in it, I'd love it! He was that kind of guy that played his roles to perfection, proving just how multi-talented he really was. So thanks again, TCM, for making my life a little happier with yet another GENE KELLY movie that I would have never seen if you hadn't made it possible!!!
