GENE KELLY
Black and white publicity photograph of Gene Kelly in a scene from The Pirate.
Photograph signed: "Gene Kelly". B/w, 10x8. Still from the 1948 romantic musical, The Pirate, which starred Kelly as Serafin and Judy Garland as Manuela, who mistakes Kelly for a notorious pirate. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Musical Score. Kelly, who had appeared on Broadway before going to Hollywood, had appeared in his first M-G-M film, For Me and My Gal (1942), with Garland. Actor, director and innovative dancer/choreographer Gene Kelly (1912-1996) was a major star in 1950s and 1960s MGM musicals, including Singin' in the Rain (1952). In 1951, he received a special Academy Award "in appreciation of his versatility as an actor, singer, director and dancer, and specially for his brilliant achievements in the art of choreography on film". Although Kelly, along with Fred Astaire, was the most successful song-and-dance man in film history, his 1952 film marked the peak of his career, and Kelly moved to Europe to take advantage of tax exemptions. Shortly after he returned to Hollywood, Kelly starred in Brigadoon (1954). His other films include Anchors Aweigh (1945; Best Actor Academy Award nomination), Take Me Out to the Ball Game (1949), An American in Paris (1951), Marjorie Morningstar (1958), Inherit the Wind (1960), What a Way to Go! (1964) and Xanadu (1980), and Kelly also hosted and starred in several TV series and miniseries and made guest appearances on a number of TV shows from 1954-1984. Encapsulated. Slightly creased at blank corners. Ink notes (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
