"That is the godawful thing about television today. Performers don't have any place to hit and miss. You're either in or you're out; you don't have a chance to become good at your craft. If you make three pictures in a row and they don't go over, you're out of the business." - Donald O'Connor
Donald O’Connor ("Singing in the Rain") & Buster Keaton. I was thrilled when Donald O'Connor agreed to play a major supporting role in a screenplay I wrote.

One of the most under appreciated dancers of his time, Donald O'Conner 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.
