Easter Monday Movie: Singin' in the Rain (U, 1952)
Singin’ in the Rain tells the story of Don Lockwood, silent movie star who has everything a person dreams of - fame, popularity and a romance with co-star Lina Lamont.
With the on-going rumours of the possibility of sound being synchronized with picture which would surely revolutionise the movie industry and change everything, the silent stars, including Don, are nervous. But what could go wrong in a world where actors can talk, people can sing and voices are heard.
Singin' in the Rain is true musical movie magic with Gene Kelly’s dance sequence an undiluted joy and iconic cinema moment.
