Two Line Reviews - #303

Movie: Singin' in the Rain (1950)

Plot: A successful on-screen pair at the pinnacle of their careers face a downfall (thanks to the awkward voice of the heroine) when speaking movies gain prominence. The hero, with his friend from the road-show days and a cute theatre artist, revamps and rescues his career and wins in his quest for love too.

  • This comedy-musical is the first film I ve seen of this kind and was thoroughly entertaining thanks to Gene Kelly & Co. for their packaging.
  • Gene Kelly & his friend Don O'Connor show some breathtaking dancing skills & that's a big plus for this musical.
  • The cute Debbie Reynolds joins the show late but does a neat job & the witty dialogues add to the pluses.
Dances its way to glory!
