    Synopsis


    Singin' in the Rain
    Hollywood, 1927: the silent-film romantic team of Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) is the toast of Tinseltown. While Lockwood and Lamont personify smoldering passions onscreen, in real life the down-to-earth Lockwood can't stand the egotistical, brainless Lina. He prefers the company of aspiring actress Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds), whom he met while escaping his screaming fans. Watching these intrigues from the sidelines is Cosmo Brown (Donald O'Connor), Don's best pal and on-set pianist. Cosmo is promoted to musical director of Monumental Pictures by studio head R.F. Simpson (Millard Mitchell) when the talking-picture revolution commences. That's all right for Cosmo, but how will talkies affect the upcoming Lockwood-Lamont vehicle "The Dueling Cavalier"? Don, an accomplished song-and-dance man, should have no trouble adapting to the microphone. Lina, however, is another matter; put as charitably as possible, she has a voice that sounds like fingernails on a blackboard. The disastrous preview of the team's first talkie has the audience howling with derisive laughter. On the strength of the plot alone, concocted by the matchless writing team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Singin' in the Rain is a delight. But with the addition of MGM's catalog of Arthur Freed-Nacio Herb Brown songs -- "You Were Meant for Me," "You Are My Lucky Star," "The Broadway Melody," and of course the title song -- the film becomes one of the greatest Hollywood musicals ever made. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      One of the Best Musicals Ever Made

      Gene Kelly jumps in puddles like a 3-year-old and flips umbrellas like an old pro. Donald O'Connor (in my favorite number from the movie) actually dances on the walls. Cyd Charisse has 14 miles of legs and moves like flowing water. Debbie Reynolds isn't as annoyingly cutesy as usual. And Jean Hagan, as Lina Lamont, steals the movie from all of them. This movie is an hour and forty minutes of pure fun and, if you haven't seen it yet, you owe it to yourself to correct that oversight.

      One of the greatest movies of all time

      This is one of the great movies of all time, and probably the best musical movie ever made. Many of the individual dance numbers ("Singin in the Rain," "Make 'em Laugh," "Moses Supposes...") are perfect gems. But unlike a lot of other movie musicals with great musical numbers, this one also has a great story. It's funny, it's charming, what more can I say. This is a great movie.

      I fell in love with this movie after seeing several clips of it in "That's Entertainment". I could watch the classic songs Singing in the Rain, Make um Laugh and Good Morning over and over again. Amazing dance routines. Like sitting in a Broadway theater.

      Great musical with the not-to-be-missed dancing in the rain sequence by Gene Kelley. Great singing and dancing by Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor too. The extra interviews are interesting as well.

      This old classic is never disappointing. The singing and acting are superb and show why the older movies never die.

      This show is a classic. It has brought a lot of music and dancing to the mainstream of contemporary song and dance. It's also got a comedic twist!!!
