Fred Astaire represented the aristocracy, I represented the proletariat. - Gene Kelly When people think of musicals, two of the first names that immediately spring to mind are Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, two giants of one of Hollywood´s most distinctive genres. Without question, both men played an instrumental role in popularizing and sustaining the musical from the 1930s through the 1950s, the final decades of Hollywood´s Golden Age. Although they did collaborate on two occasions, in many ways Gene Kelly´s rise to popularity in the 1940s amounted to a changing of the guard. For film historians and fans of the musical, however, even if they weren´t contemporaries, Astaire and Kelly will forever be viewed as rivals, with each having left an indelible stamp on the genre that defined their careers. While it is true that a comparison between Astaire and Kelly is indispensable to any study of Kelly´s life, much can also be gained simply by focusing mostly on his life and career. What made Kelly unusual for actors of that era is that he did not actually arrive in Hollywood until he was nearly 30 years old, so his early life and work before film had a crucial influence on his star image. Furthermore, given that he came to prominence after Astaire, Kelly’s career offers a valuable lens through which to chart the evolution of the musical genre, as well as a look at the prevailing standards of masculinity within Hollywood at the time. 1.

What would you do if your anonymous Internet best friend turned out to be Hollywood´s hottest celebrity? Cinder458: Your blogaversary is coming up, right? EllaTheRealHero: Do all those Hollywood friends of yours know you use words like blogaversary? Cinder458: Of course not. I need your address. Got you a blogaversary present. Cinder got me a gift? My heart flipped. Not that I was in love with my Internet best friend or anything. That would be utterly ridiculous. The boy was cocky and stubborn and argued with everything I said just to be infuriating. He also had lots of money, dated models—which meant he had to be hot—and was a closet book nerd. Funny, rich, hot, confident, book lover. Definitely not my type. Nope. Not at all. It´s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she´s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father´s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she´s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she´s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who´s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder. Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There´s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won´t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he´s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian´s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn´t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he´ll suffer through it if it means he´ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything. … With a heartwarming online celebrity romance reminiscent of Jennifer E. Smith´s This Is What Happy Looks Like, bestselling young adult author Kelly Oram has struck gold with her new adult contemporary retelling of the timeless fairytale classic Cinderella. ´´A story that has it all: tears, laughs, sparks and a drop-dead swoonworthy hero. Give it a while and DreamWorks will pick up this story for a movie adaption, no doubt.´´ Anna Katmore, Author of Play With Me & Neverland ´´Both funny and heart-wrenching, Cinder and Ella will give you all the feels. It´s the best twist on the Cinderella tale I have come across. I am not just a fan of Kelly Oram. I am an addict.´´ Cassie Mae, author of Switched & How To Hook A Bookworm ´´Cinder & Ella is a beautiful modern-day fairytale with a great cast of characters that made me laugh and swoon. It had me staying up late at night to read just one more chapter, and at the end, I was left with a big grin on my face.´´ Cindi Madsen, USA Today Bestselling Author of Falling For Her Fiancé & Cinderella Screwed Me Over
