Happy Birthday Gene Kelly! (August 23, 1912 - February 2, 1996)

“There is a strange sort of reasoning in Hollywood that musicals are less worthy of Academy consideration than dramas. It’s a form of snobbism, the same sort that perpetuates the idea that drama is more deserving of Awards than comedy.”
