Once upon a time, movie stars are stars not because they generate buzz and gossip but solely for their great great talent.

Singin' In the Rain (1952) stars Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds (that tough-talking mother in THE MOTHER?) and Donald O'Connor. They tap dance and sing and act. The dance sequences alone take my breath away. They so so well-synchronised that it must have gone through hundreds of rehearsals. The actors are so agile!Squatting and can-can dancing! It makes me wonder if Jackie Chan can try a musical like this but then again Gene Kelly can also do stunts.

When I was watching the so so famous Singin' In the Rain sequence, I was telling myself this has to be the happiest moment in movie history. I have heard so much about it. A true classic moment and indeed it is. So free-spirited and uplifting. Like a boy playing in the rain.

I don't really fancy musicals. Total crap, I think. Where in the hell will people break up into a song and dance in real life? But I think musicals like this one are such a joy to watch. I have to change my view about musicals. I think muscials like this one never fails to entertain and inspire awe. Implausible the story may be but I cannot hate movies whose sole mission is to put a big smile on your face.

Rating: B+

Delightful and funny, this is the kind of movie the classic Hollywood will always be remembered by. Such movies as "The Artist", "La La Land" owe much to this one with its beautiful song\dance numbers, light humour and strong performances. The scene with the leggy dancer is the high point of this movie on my opinion.

Arguably the best movie musical of all time. Humorous, great story arc, supremely entertaining songs & dances; a great homage to the history of film.

The only prior knowledge I had of this film was the signature song 'Singing in the Rain featured in other films most notably A Clockwork Orange.
It tells a story of Hollywood filmmaking during the transition from silent films to talkies in the 1920s.
The film is part musical, part comedy, part romance. It reminded me of what La La Land could have been like!
It begins in 1927 and the silent film era. Two of the biggest stars are an on-screen partnership Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagan). The trouble is Lamont has an awful voice that until now has been hidden with silent films but is threatened with exposure in the new era of talkies.
The studio and Don come up with a solution using Don's new real life love interest Kathy (Debbie Reynolds) to dub Lina's awful voice.
The film features several iconic songs in its musical element. As well as the 'Singing in the Rain' song other notable songs include 'Make 'Em Laugh.'
The story has a comedy element that lowers the tone of the film and makes it so enjoyable along with the musical routines.
I've never been a musical fan but thoroughly enjoyed visiting this film.

I can see why this is considered one of the greatest movies of all time. Those two guys were tap-dancing AND playing the fiddle. At the same time!

A movie with great cast and several great musical numbers including the titular song being a highlight of the film.

Absolutely deserves every accolade as the best movie musical ever. Sly, funny, witty, charming, exuberant, stunning. Though a lot of controversy between Stanley Donnen and Gene Kelly as far as who deserves credit for directing this masterpiece, they got co-credit so leave it at that. Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor come close to stealing the show. Infectious Golden Hollywood magic at its best.

Singin' in the Rain not only boasts a witty screenplay but also incredibly talented actors who carry out stunningly lyrical tap-dances and conveys indeed 'a glorious feeling' to audience members.

Existe um consenso de longa data de que este é o melhor filme musical de todos os tempos, e logo vemos que é impossível discordar disso! Singin 'in the Rain é Composto por um grau elevado de detalhes criativos e uma abundância desenfreada de Gene Kelly, Jean Hagen e Donald O'Connor transpirando talento. todos os elementos deste gigantesco arco-íris são cuidadosamente planejado e resultam em um musical clássico colossal.
