What a glorious feeling!

MGM's 1952 classic musical of Hollywood's golden age, with Gene Kelly dancing up a storm. Roger Ebert: "There is no movie musical more fun than Singin' in the Rain, and few that remain as fresh over the years." More

Hollywood, the 1920s. Toasts of the Tinsletown are the silent, silver screen romantic duo of Don (Kelly) and Lina (Jean Hagen). But their careers look shaky as the movies transitions from the silent era to talkies. At a test screening of their new film, Lina's shrill voice - like nails on a blackboard - and Don's old-school acting is met with howling laughter. The solution? Turn the film into an all-singing all-dancing musical - with Lina's voice overdubbed by aspiring actress Kathy (Debbie Reynolds). Romantic and starlet rivalry ensues...

Features an array of Arthur Freed / Nacio Herb Brown songs including 'You Were Meant For Me', 'The Broadway Melody' and of course 'Singin' in the Rain'. Hide

Press Reviews

BBC

It was never expected to become immortal and the best Hollywood musical of all time. Full review.

Chicago Sun-Times (Roger Ebert)

There is no movie musical more fun than Singin' in the Rain, and few that remain as fresh over the years. Full review.

Empire (UK)

Because of the enduring fame of the dancing in the rain scene, we often forget how sublime the rest of this musical rom-com is. Full review.

New York Times

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 carefully contrived and guaranteed to...put you in a buttercup mood. Full review.

Total Film (UK)

A Technicolor love-letter to a studio system on the verge of dissolution. Full review.

Variety (USA)

A fancy package of musical entertainment with wide appeal and bright grossing prospects. Full review.
