520    He sang and danced in the rain, proclaimed New York to be 
       a wonderful town, and convinced a group of Parisian 
       children that they had rhythm. One of the most influential
       and respected entertainers of Hollywood's golden age, Gene
       Kelly revolutionized film musicals with his innovative and
       timeless choreography. A would-be baseball player and one-
       time law student, Kelly captured the nation's imagination 
       in films such as Anchors Aweigh (1945), On the Town (1949),
       An American in Paris (1951), and Singin' in the Rain 
       (1952). In the first comprehensive biography written since
       the legendary star's death, authors Cynthia Brideson and 
       Sara Brideson disclose new details of Kelly's complex 
       life. Not only do they examine his contributions to the 
       world of entertainment in depth, but they also consider 
       his political activities -- including his opposition to 
       the Hollywood blacklist. The authors even confront Kelly's
       darker side and explore his notorious competitive streak, 
       his tendency to be a taskmaster on set, and his multiple 
       marriages. Drawing on previously untapped articles and 
       interviews with Kelly's wives, friends, and colleagues, 
       Brideson and Brideson illuminate new and unexpected 
       aspects of the actor's life and work. He's Got Rhythm is a
       balanced and compelling view of one of the screen's 
       enduring legends.
