Singin’ in the Rain – 1952

To call Singin’ in the Rain a classic would be an understatement. This film is still held up as the quintessential musical and more significantly, it’s the best film about show business. It is also one of the few examples where the film was written around the songs, so confident they were that the songs were good. The film follows silent film star Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) as he adapts to the addition of sound to cinema. Kelly gives his most memorable performance and arguably his best. The musical numbers are expertly choreographed and have been honored or parodied in the decades since. There are few American films that are better than this one and it’s longevity is assured for good reason.

A film that everyone should see and everyone will end up liking.

An American classic of truly epic proportions, I award this film my highest honor…
