Donald Oconnor QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Doing those costume pictures was wonderful.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
Going up the walls doing somersaults, that trick took a couple of days.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
I can picture things, like a painter would, though I'm not good at painting, either.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
I didn't smoke. I didn't smoke then, and I don't smoke now. We worked every day - that keeps you in pretty good shape. We could go for a long time in one take. You had to be in good shape with Gene Kelly.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
I like it live. I think the numbers are live in the movie. If they replaced any, it would have been due to extreme set noise.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
I think you should make more movies, more musicals. I think the public deserves that. I think this country deserves to be able to get out and foster that talent. Give them an opportunity to become stars. I think the whole idea is wonderful.

I'm not a good choreographer: I can't remember what I put down.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
It's so wonderful... if your whole day is rotten, once they start the music, it seems to melt away.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
My brothers and my mother were all dancers, outside of whatever else they did, like acrobatics, high-wire, trapeze. I was born in a circus.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
Pratfalls are always funny. A performer has to answer to himself. If you think something's funny, you've got to go out there and try. It's only by trial and error that you find out.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
Remember, if you do the same act for 20, 30 years it gets a little boring unless you've got something else going for you... And the orchestra really kept you going. They'd laugh at all your jokes, even if they'd been hearing them for the last 30 years.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
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.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
They put me in a harness, like a horse, to learn the back somersault. It was weird up there when I put on that harness for the first time. The courage came with practice.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
We used to work in two great black houses: Chicago's Regal Theater, and the Apollo Theater on 125th Street in New York.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
Well, my legs are the same size; I'm still 5-foot-10 - that's with heels. I started dancing when I was 13 months old. The first dance I did was the Black Bottom, and I did the same routine for years in the acts.
Quotation of Donald Oconnor
You see, as far as the man's personality goes, there's no one who can touch Fred Astaire. He's unique. But for the work he does, I would say Tommy can do it, Fosse can do it.
