babygumm54 reblogged your post: babygumm54 reblogged your photoset I see Gene…

In 1968 Judy was lost, without money, without friends.. without Gene… She was helpless, frail.. I just don’t see Gene as…

and she was  married to someone else. I also saw Judy as someone proud who wouldn’t take that money, and in late 60s Gene’s second wife (who was beginning to get ill herself) made it very clear that she didn’t want his old friends hanging around, which may have precluded some interaction.  We don’t know what their friendship was like then. We weren’t privy to it. All we do is imagine what might have been. what MIGHT have been for our benefit, no one else’s.

I see Gene Kelly as a great friend of Judy, not as a great lover.. Maybe they had an affair - or not. And where was he…

I meant as a screen pairing - yeah, I like the jugenea thing - but at the end of the day it’s a fangirl thing.  Were they friends in 68? I’d wager they were, but a lot of people couldn’t reach her then. Two sides to every story.

My goodness! Your tumblr is PERFECT! - as everything you do, my dear! I loved it.. It's our "Tributo à Judy 2.0", but with more Gene than usual - I'm so sick of this man =P (kidding!)

Who are you, stranger? My mommy told me not to talk to strangers. I’m sorry, but I don’t know you! Thanks for your compliment… but no, I definitely can’t talk to strangers!
