Movie Musical Challenge – Singin’ In The Rain

Bookish Whimsey Movie Musical Challenge

For this Movie Musical Challenge I’ve made a list of 15 musicals that I haven’t yet seen and probably ought to have. The challenge is throughout the year and once watched I’ll put my thoughts up on the blog. Today’s is the turn of Singin’ In The Rain.

Singing' in the Rain

 

So the eleventh movie for the challenge is Singin’ In The Rain (1952), starring  Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds.

This is a lighthearted and fun deception of Hollywood in the 1920s during the transition from silent pictures to ‘talkies’. Resulting in some hilarious situations and causing some of the dilemmas in the film.

All the songs here are pretty beautiful but my favourites were ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ (obviously), ‘Make ‘Em Laugh’ and ‘All I Do Is Dream of You’. The dancing in this movie is also pretty special and it is hard to imagine that Debbie Reynolds was not really considered a dancer. I thought she kept up with Gene Kelly quite well.

Despite its age this musical still remains as ‘fresh’ and exciting as when it was first shown. This is definitely my new favourite musical of all time!
