Cute musical based on Hollywood during the transition from silent films to "talkies".
Jean Hagen was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Lina Lamont - the successful silent film actress who has a horrid voice and has to be dubbed for the talkies. She did a great job of portraying the spoiled/catty actress.
Debbie Reynolds is adorable as the actress who is forced by contract to be the voice of Lina Lamont.
But best of all was Gene Kelly, who may not be the best actor in the world but can sure dance up a storm. I can watch the singin' in the rain scene over and over.
I waited a long time to watch this one thinking it wouldn't be that great but I was mistaken. If you enjoy older movies or musicals, check this one out.
