Singin' in the Rain

Stanley Donan

This 1952 classic is a tongue-in-cheek musical comedy depicting the transition from ‘silent films' to ‘talkies'. A feast of music and dance starring the legendary Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, the story is based on the behind-the-scenes goings-on in the industry, the resistance and problems that pop up when sound and voice dubbing is first introduced. When actors are shown a demonstration of a talking movie no one wants to be part of it, but when a rival studio enjoys tremendous success with its first talkie, Don Lockwood (Kelly), a star, decides to convert his silent film into a talkie. What follows is a hilarious attempt to solve a series of problems based on actual situations that studios faced at that time. The delightful dance choreography is by Kelly.
