Singin’ in the Rain
SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN has been voted one of the greatest films of all time in international critics’ polls. There are other contenders: Top Hat, Swing Time, An American in Paris, Oklahoma, and West Side Story, but SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN stands above the rest because it is not only from Hollywood, it is about Hollywood. This 1952 musical offers a comical depiction of the American movie business caught up in the bumpy transition from silent films to “talkies”. A modest hit when first released, it eventually became legendary. Starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds and Jean Hagen.
