Donald O' Conner and Debbie Reynolds, wish we had cute, clean cut actors/actresses like this these days!

One of the most under appreciated dancers of his time, Donald O'Connor had the great dance skills and the comedic timing to make him one of the best ever filmed. Best evidence is Moses Supposes with Gene Kelly and Make 'Em Laugh both from Singin' In The Rain.

Donald O'Connor. Have a friend who was neighbors with him for years, one of the nicest and down to earth dudes you'd ever meet.

Actor, dancer, acrobat and singer. Gene Kelly considered him as the best dancer in Hollywood since Fred Astaire (Gene Kelly's autobiography by Alain Masson)

Fred Astaire and Donald O'Connor. It would have been fun to see these two guys in a movie together!
