AKA: “Singing in the Rain”
Synopsis:
One of the all-time great movie musicals–an affectionate spoof of the turmoil that afflicted the motion picture industry in the late 1920s during the changeover from silent films to sound. Don Lockwood (Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Hagen) are a popular romantic silent screen team when sound comes along. To continue, temperatmental Lina must have her terrible voice dubbed by aspiring actress Kathy Selden (Reynolds), whom Don falls for. O’Connor’s an acrobatic marvel as Don’s best pal, Cosmo Brown, and of course there’s Kelly’s classic much-copied title dance. Later a Broadway musical.
Cast: Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Jean Hagen, Debbie Reynolds, Rita Moreno, King Donovan, Millard Mitchell, Cyd Charisse, Douglas Fowley, Madge Blake, Joi Lansing
Directed by: Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen; Producer: Roger Edens and Arthur Freed…[The Poster above is from M.I. beautiful country Of Japan and the Poster in the header is from America…]

Critics over the years have been in agreement, from Pauline Kael who called it “the most enjoyable of musicals” to David Kehr, who said it is “one of the shining glories of the American musical’ to Roger Ebert who wrote, “There is no movie musical more fun as ‘Singin’ in the Rain,’ and few that remain as fresh over the years.” Even New York Times curmudgeon Bosley Crowthers wrote at the time of the film’s release, “Guaranteed to put you in a buttercup mood.” And let’s face it, if a film can put old sourpuss Crowthers in a “buttercup mood” that my friends, is one hell of a movie!
