This is our very first Gene Kelly post !!
Albanian-American photographer Gjon Mili (1904- 1984) is best known for his work in LIFE magazine and for his photos of very famous artists including Gene Kelly in 1944. Around the period of “Cover Girl,” a Columbia movie, is this dance in which double-exposure photography shows Kelly struggling bitterly with his conscience. The Gijon Mili pictures shown below capture the extraordinary grace and inventiveness of this number.
