Gene Kelly: The Taskmaster as told by Debbie Reynolds

Debbie Reynolds talks about Gene Kelly

Click the link above for a great BBC interview with Debbie

Gene worked everyone around him to the brink of exhaustion, including himself.  He never asked anything of anyone that he would not do himself.  He was tireless and demanding.  When asked to develop a ballet in France, the troupe was not used to his style, but they learned quickly.
