Gene Kelly at Age 68

Gene continued to work into his 60s and 70s, but his last dancing scene was in 1980 in the movie Xanadu. While a dreadful movie, it did showcase a 68 year old Gene Kelly still able to dance and display the skills and wonderful style we remember.

This is a wonderful scene with Kenny Ortega telling the story about how he met, and later convinced a 68 year old Gene Kelly to be in Xanadu. The movie is mostly awful, but the parts with Gene and his last on screen dance with Olivia is wonderful to watch. This behind the scenes story is great.
