A Lesson in Hollywood Legends with Ellen DeGeneres

November 14, 2019

Today is Veterans Day. I want to say thank you to all
the men and women who serve. Thank you so much. [CHEERS, APPLAUSE] Since Veterans Day
is on a Monday, schools are closed
for the whole week. That’s not true, but I used
to tell my mother that. [LAUGHTER] But since kids are
home from school today, I want to help them
learn something. One of my mottoes is
“Never stop learning.” And that’s why I always try
to teach my staff something new every single day. The other day
during rehearsal, I was giving them a history
lesson about Hollywood. They didn’t seem
to know the story. I was so happy that
I could tell them. [LAUGHTER] [MUSIC PLAYING] You want to see
what you’re going to be dancing with tomorrow? Yes. All right. An umbrella, which is
a prop that a lot of– it’s easy. It’s like– I think Fred
Astaire really made this famous. Gene Kelly. First, it was Fred. [LAUGHING] It wasn’t in a movie, Mary. It was something he did. It was raining one
afternoon in Hollywood. [LAUGHING] Fred and Gene were
walking down the street. [LAUGHTER] They were sharing an umbrella. Fred did this dance with it. Gene said, I’m going
to do that in a movie. Do you mind if I steal it? Fred said, fine. (CHUCKLING) That’s
how it happened. [LAUGHTER] [MUSIC PLAYING] [CHEERS, APPLAUSE] True story. You’re welcome. We’ll be right back.
