SINGIN IN THE RAIN
Directed by Stanley Donen & Gene Kelly
(1952, USA, 103 mins.)
Considered by many to be the finest musical comedy of all-time, Singin' In the Rain is sheer delight. Betty Comden and Adolph Green wrote this wonderful film about the time when movies were changing from silent to talkies. The songs range from the hilarious "Make 'Em Laugh" performed by O'Connor, to the delicate "You Were Meant for Me" and the show-stopping classic "Singin' in the Rain" solo by Gene Kelly.
"Extraordinarily exuberant, always youthful, joyously indestructible. Enjoying Singin' In the Rain has nothing to do with nostalgia or with sentimentality. It is simply stated, a Hollywood masterpiece."- Vincent Canby, New York Times.
