Gene Kelly Roller Skating, and Singing in the Rain

Gene Kelly was probably the greatest male dancer Hollywood ever featured, and his performance of the title song in the the movie 'Singing in the Rain' rates as one of the most iconic clips of all time.

But, as we so often find, great dancers make great skaters (the basic skills needed are quite similar), so Gene Kelly was also a pretty hot skater. Below are clips of his 'Always Fair Weather' skating performance, his 'Singing in the Rain' performance, and an ice skating tribute that is also well worth some of your download quota.
