Movie Review: Singin’ in the Rain
On a rainy day, there’s nothing quite like curling up with a good movie and forgetting about the inclement weather. But when the weather veers away from dreary and closer to hazardous, it takes a special kind of movie to raise our spirits. While disaster movies can be fun, The Day After Tomorrow seemed a little too on-the-nose considering present conditions. What we wanted was a classic comedy that, like a good old friend with a great sense of humor, would help us laugh our way through the storm. Luckily in 1952 a little picture called Singin’ in the Rain was made. Set in the late 1920s, just as movie studios were transitioning from silent films to “talkies”, this movie features Gene Kelly as Don Lockwood, a silent film star, and Debbie Reynolds as Kathy Seldon, an aspiring stage actress who mocks Lockwood for his lackluster acting accomplishments. Throw in the added talent of Donald O’Connor and Jean Hagen, several humorous song and dance numbers, and a stellar 1920s inspired wardrobe, and you have the timeless musical classic that is Singin’ in the Rain. Lighthearted, witty, and thoroughly entertaining, the movie is the perfect solution to our rainy (read: hurricane-y) day blues.
