Donald O'Connor

Part of Six-Lecture Series: Song & Dance Men of the Silver Screen with Bonnie Weiss

Donald O'Connor
This six-lecture series with Bonnie Weiss highlights the lives and talents of musical masters of the stage and screen.

Donald O'Connor is best known for his brilliant comic tour de force performance of "Make 'Em Laugh" in the beloved movie musical Singin' in the Rain. But many believe that he also had the best singing voice of any of the song and dance men of the silver screen. And he had a great teacher: Bing Crosby. He made his film debut at the age of 13 playing Bing's kid brother in the movie Sing You Sinners. During his adolescence, he starred in a series of popular teen musicals with terrific dancer/singer/comic Peggy Ryan.

Karate: What You See Is Not What You Get

Community Tuesdays

Karate: What You See Is Not What You Get
Hollywood has become the primary source of information for most people about martial arts. Action movies can give rise to fantasies about hand-to-hand combat that should appropriately remain in the imagination rather than be thought to be even remotely realistic. Although sport karate at its highest levels includes world-class athletic skill and perfect technique, the presence of a referee with a whistle who can stop combat also creates a sense of fantasy in both the participants and spectators.

Desmond Tuck, one of a handful of 7th degree black belts in Goju Ryu Seiwa Karate-do in the Western hemisphere—and less than a dozen in the Western world—will describe his experience as he climbed the ladder in one of the premier karate organizations in the world.
