About the Movie
Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor star in one of the greatest musicals ever filmed. Musician Don Lockwood (Kelly) rises to stardom during Hollywood's silent-movie era--paired with the beautiful, jealous and dumb Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen). When Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden (Reynolds), Lamont has her fired. But with the introduction of talking pictures, audiences laugh when they hear Lockwood speak for the first time--and the studio uses Selden to dub her voice.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: A fancy package of musical entertainment with wide appeal and bright grossing prospects.
Fresh: Miss Reynolds, besides singing in her own pleasurable style and doing some clever dancing, handles her first romantic lead appealingly and capably. Kelly and O'Connor each can be covered with one word: Great!
Fresh: The ultimate nostalgic source text is itself a pomo homage to a lost moment.
I recently saw this movie in the theater (it was a TCM 1-night only showing), and since then, I've wanted to own it. I am faced with two options: spend $80 on a Blu-Ray version when I don't even have a Blu-Ray player, or spend $10 (for a movie this old, i feel it would be pointless to get the HD version) on the iTunes version and connect my iPod to the TV... Hmmm...
The ultimate classic. Absolutely wonderful.
As a long-time fan of musicals, I can safely claim that "Singin' in the Rain" is the best musical of all time. And in its dedication to making the audience feel as happy as possible, it is one of the greatest films ever made.
