An intimate and personal look into the life of Gene Kelly

Legendary actor, dancer, director and choreographer Gene Kelly (Singin’ In The Rain, On The Town, An American In Paris) brought astonishing grace and athleticism to the big screen – yet we know little about him.

Patricia Ward Kelly – his wife and biographer – presents a portrait of this dynamic and innovative artist who created some of the most memorable and iconic scenes in film history.

Join Patricia in this intimate event that combines rare and familiar film clips, previously unreleased recordings, personal memorabilia, and insights from hours of interviews and conversations with her husband.

Watch recent interviews Patrica Ward Kelly gave on Sunrise.
