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.
Before Donald O’Connor danced his way into the hearts of millions in Singin’ in the Rain he performed on the Vaudeville Circuit, including Downtown Danville’s Palace Theater, with his family. But when they were between gigs, he came home to Danville to visit friends and family.
Donald O'Connor. I miss the days when stars were famous for a reason..talent. Donald, to me, is the epitome of high class talent, style, everything all in one, and I'm glad a lot of his movies are still around so I can dream of how it used to be!
