Evening with Gene Kelly, An (1977)

*** (out of 4)

Pretty good interview with Gene Kelly takes a look at his entire career as the legend discusses various films as well as his early life and how he got involved with dancing. I'm not overly familiar with Kelly's work yet, outside of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, of course, but this documentary did exactly what it should do and that's get me excited to seek out more of Kelly's films. Kelly is extremely entertaining here as we get some great stories about the MGM factory, Sinatra and various movies including AN American IN Paris, ON THE TOWN and ANCHORS AWEIGH. Kelly gives many wonderful stories about the making of these film but the most interesting ones are his battling MGM over their cheapness of never wanting to film on location. Some of the best stuff deals with the making of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN where Kelly talks about the studio being worried how they'd pull off the title number as well as him hearing some people call the movie "camp". All in all this is a fun and entertaining interview that fans will certainly want to check out.
