Gene Kelly double exposure, by Gjon Mili

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.

Caption from LIFE, describing a dance Gene Kelly performed in the 1944 movie, Cover Girl. “Kelly rises, tries to leap away. But his conscience continues to pursue him.”
