My gf and I are watching Singin’ in the Rain, which is a fave of both of ours.
In the scene where Cosmo and Kathy are showing Don the idea of dubbing and lip synching, it occurred to me how pleasant Mr O’Connor was to watch. He has poise, charm, looks, and was extremely athletically gifted. His Make Em Laugh is my favorite number of this show.
Looking him up on IMDb, I was reminded of just how many wonderful movies he was in.
I guess that’s it. This thread is a Donald O’Connor appreciation thread. We miss you, you awesome performer. Thank g-d for video stores and TCM.
