5. "The Heather on the Hill," with Cyd Charisse, Brigadoon

There's another pas de deux later in the film, to the same music, that I consider a sort of continuation of this number. So I'll post it here as well (you can consider it 5 1/2!).

Hi guys, I'm back! And I'm very, very tired, and I'm going to bed. :-) My body thinks it's after 2 a.m. right now. But I had a wonderful time, and I'll have links to photos of my trip before too long.

But first I want to get something started. As I mentioned recently, Gene Kelly's 100th birthday is next Thursday, so I'm going to count down with my own personal top ten Gene dance numbers, one every day until the big day. It was HARD to pick just ten; I could easily have done a top twenty. Somehow, though, I managed to narrow it down, so here's #10. Enjoy!

10. "You Were Meant for Me," with Debbie Reynolds, Singin' in the Rain
