Stormtrooper in the Rain: The T-Shirt

Most Gene Kelly (and Star Wars) fans are familiar with the Stormtrooper in the Rain image that’s been circulating the Internet for the past couple of years. Now, a t-shirt with that (silly? cute?) homage to Gene Kelly’s “Singin’ in the Rain” dance is available. In many, many colors. For 25 bucks. (Btw, I would totally wear this while teaching my film classes…)

    Again, these people better be mindful and make sure there are no infringement violations in peddling these shirts! I'm sorry if I'm critical here but I just don't understand Patrica Ward Kelly. She has control of Gene's estate, likeness & image. She was willing to give Volkswagen the right to make a tasteless, crappy a** commercial Singin' In the Rain parody but not willing to market Gene's obvious world appeal through merchandising! I see that I'm not the only one who would love a cool GK t-shirt! Anyway, the proceeds can go to causes to which he cared so deeply like scholarships, education or support for the arts. Even better, the proceeds can go toward an inheritance for Gene's descendents. Besides, he did all of the work! Ok, I'm done…
