“Sinful Caesar sipped his snifter, seized his knees, and sneezed.”
Donald O’Connor, Gene Kelly and Bobby Watson in “Singin’ In The Rain”, 1952
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 👑!
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.
