Singin' in the Rain is another mighty fine MGM Technicolor musical comedy produced by Arthur Freed whose An American in Paris copped seven Academy awards last week.

...this one's the Taj Mahal, Armstrong's footprint on the moon, the 2001 Arizona-New York World Series, the Clash's London Calling, and the perfect foamy head on an expertly poured Guinness.

Compounded generously of music, dance, color, spectacle and a riotous abundance of Gene Kelly, Jean Hagen and Donald O'Connor on the screen, all elements in this rainbow program are carefuly contrived and guaranteed to...put you in a buttercup mood.
| Original Score: 4.5/5

Watching Singin' in the Rain is an exuberant, magical experience -- a journey deep into the heart of feel-good territory.

A rare musical whose story -- scripted by Betty Comden and Adolph Green -- is just as good as the songs.

The ultimate nostalgic source text is itself a pomo homage to a lost moment.

There is no movie musical more fun than Singin' in the Rain, and few that remain as fresh over the years.
