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.

Kelly's delight - not in his own movements, but in the sheer joy of being able to move - is contagious.

It's tough to fight the consensus that this is the greatest movie musical of all time (although, to be honest, I would place it second, just a hair below Top Hat), but what's often lost in the praise is that this also qualifies as a great comedy.

...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.

At the time, this film was treated as just another MGM musical but over the years it has gained in stature and is now considered as one of the best American films ever made--Read why.

Come rain or shine, the Hollywood musical never got any better than this rip-roaring Stanley Donen/Gene Kelly classic.

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
