The folks at Virginia Quarterly Review were nice enough to let me write an essay for them on Gene Kelly. In the piece I discuss
- the slew of centennial events celebrating Gene Kelly (some of which are still going on, btw),
- a few reasons Kelly and his image are circulating in pop culture of the twenty-first century,
- my attraction to and interest in the star, and
- Kelly’s complicated (masculine/feminine) star persona
So, if any of that interests you, head over to VQR‘s “Gene Kelly, Star Signification, and Centennial Celebrations.” Thanks for reading!
