Kelly's a charm, and so are Reynolds and O'Connor. It's a simple and likeable story, told with catchy songs and amazing dance numbers. The movie was intended to put a smile on people's faces. And it did--then and still. It's not hard to see why, over 60 years later, it's still the one musical most people have heard of. The greatest Hollywood musical ever made.

Favorite Movie Quote: "Whadda ya think I am? Dumb? - Or, something!?"

Of course, today, not a lot of people realize just how many Hollywood actors' careers were completely ruined back in 1927 by the coming of sound. Believe me, the number was not small.

In a nutshell, these famous actors of the Silent Era may have projected plenty of that wonderful thing called "charisma" onto the silver screen, but when it came to their voices (ugh!), they were atrocious!

In Singin' In The Rain, actress Jean Hagen is absolutely priceless as Lena Lamont, the seductive superstar of silent films. Hagen's "Lena" was a prime example of an actress whose career was, most surely, destined for the axe once "Talkies" took over in 1927.

All-In-All - Singin' In The Rain ranks right up there as one of the greatest and most entertaining Hollywood Musicals of all-time. Even if "Musicals" aren't your thing, you'll find it near impossible not to enjoy this high-energy, non-stop spectacle of song, dance, and comedy.

Singin' In The Rain is a fond recreation of that bygone movie-making era when the flourishing Hollywood film industry was making its shaky transition into the greatest sensation of all - Talking pictures.

My favourite musical number was "Broadway Melody".

"Singing In The Rain" should be selected as a National Film Treasure. {Maybe it already is) Directed by both Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly it remains known by all as a film masterpiece. We may never see such dancing on film like this again. Along with Gene Kelly, we cannot forgot the great performances of co-stars Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor. Gene Kelly of course found more ways to tap dance in puddles while singing the title song. That song alone was a big hit in 1952 when the movie came out. Donald O'Connor made dance history as far as I am concerned. His "Make Em Laugh" showed his acrobatic genius. Wait to you see what he can do while dancing, changing hats and doing back flips. I see that many patrons are waiting for the movie, and that gives me a good feeling. You still want to watch a classic movie like "Singing in the Rain". Thanks to KCLS for making the movie available to us all!

All I do is dream of you the whole night through
With the dawn, I still go on dreaming of you
You're every thought, you're everything
You're every song I ever sing
Summer, Winter, Autumn, and Spring
And were there more than twenty-four hours a day
They'd be spent in sweet content dreaming away
When skies are gray when skies are blue
Morning, noon and night time too
All I do the whole day through is dream of you
All I do is dream of you the whole night thru
With the dawn, I still go on and dream of you
You're every thought, you're every thing,
You're every song I ever sing
Summer, Winter, Autumn, and Spring
And were there more than twenty-four hours a day
They'd be spent in sweet content dreaming away
When skies are gray, when skies are blue
Morning, noon and night time too

Short people have long faces, and long people have short faces. Big people have little humor, and little people have no humor at all.
