Donald O'Connor

Donald O'Connor is possibly best remembered for his role as the comic foil to Gene Kelly in 'Singin' in the Rain' (1952). In this unedited recording, he recalls with enthusiasm his experience of the Hollywood film business, his time in vaudeville and, of course, working on 'Singin' in the Rain'. He refers to some of his many co-stars, including Bing Crosby, Deanna Durbin, Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe.

This unedited interview is presented as it was originally recorded. Therefore, there are changes in the sound levels and there may be some interruptions and interference from background noise. Parts of this interview were used in various documentaries.
