Practice makes perfect … 😃

Donald O’Connor and Gene Kelly performing ‘Moses’ in “Singin’ In The Rain”, 1952

Donald O'Connor was extraordinary. Gene always thought that he was one of the great unsung heroes and one of the greatest improvisational comedians of all time. […]

And the “Moses Supposes” number, Gene thought that was the best tap dance that he [Gene] ever did on screen.”

This is now one of my favorite things ever


“Sinful Caesar sipped his snifter, seized his knees, and sneezed.”

Cosmo fools around with Don and his diction coach. Finally, he “ruins” the lesson, but how can one be serious? Just look at him  … he’s simply the best! After all, ‘Moses supposes’ is born … tap dance at its best 👑!

Mr. O’Connor’s facial expression is priceless 💋!


My entertainment for tonight.

Gene used to say that the best tap number ever done in the movies was Eleanor Powell and Fred Astaire dancing in ‘Broadway Melody of 1940’. He also told me that the best tap number HE ever did on film was 'Moses Supposes’ with Donald O’Connor. He said Donald was a great, unsung hero – a terrific improvisational comedian with remarkable spontaneity.
