Quote of the Day: Gene Kelly

"Since VCRs came in, I get a lot more fan mail than I did when I was a movie star. A lot of it is sort of funny because they're mash notes from fourteen, fifteen year old girls who think you just made the picture last year." - Gene Kelly, on the set of That's Entertainment III in 1993.


  1. Java, I love his use of the term "mash notes" --that really dates a person! Me too, I guess, because I know what it means!

  2. I love this quote, but how could these girls not realize how old the movies were? It's hilarious!

  3. Becky,
    "Mash notes" is exactly what drew me to that quote.:)

    I haven't the vaguest idea, but I understand having a crush on a star who turns out to be older than my granddad or long dead. At least they have good taste.


Thanks for your contribution to Java's Journey.
