Astaire’s “Respect for Gene Kelly”

“Many people think of dancers as being too aware or jealous of one another. Such is not the case here. I think I know Gene pretty well. He has his easier, lighter moods and also his very serious moments, which are only natural with an artistic temperament […] My respect for Gene Kelly as a person and an artist is unbounded.” — Fred Astaire, THE FILMS OF GENE KELLY
