What year is this? He looks like he stepped out of 1957, but those dancers tell me it was more like 1967.
He's kickin' it old school! It's the only way he knows.
I also thought how odd they would be cranking this creaky piece out during Woodstock. Somebody's grannie must have just been thrilled.And Donald O'Connor creeps me out i the same way June Allyson does.
And didn't you have a thing about Betty Hutton, too? Or was that just a dream I had?
AArgh. Let us never speak of the Hutton.
June and Betty - the two most opposite personae in Hollywood history, as well as two of the most inexplicable. Neither make any sense at all, and yet both were considerable stars. The past is another country.And, more to the subject at hand: I could go a very long time without again having to witness Donald O'Connor frugging.
I think I can add my voice to the consensus - Mr O'Connor leaves me very cold indeed... Jx
If only I could find a clip of him with June Allyson and Betty Hutton!
Mr. O'C is charming, snappy and dashing. So not-in-your-face-til-you-like-me kind of entertainer that it's a relief to watch him ply his trade with a smile. I do wonder if he was thinking about the wonderful orgies he might've attended at Roddy's home with Rock, Roddy, Sir Larry and Danny Kaye and a bevy of California blonde chorus boys, if he only had a penis.
I've never had a problem with him, and his performance in Singin' in the Rain still cracks me up. Then again, that's pretty much all I've seen him in!
