Singin' in the Rain (U)

Stanley Donan

It’s 1927 in Hollywood and the stuntman-turned-matinee-idol star of Monumental Pictures, Don Lockwood is caught in the bumpy transition from silent films to talkies. When the studio’s attempts to make their own talkie turn disastrous, it’s down to Don, his songwriter best friend Cosmo and ingénue love interest Kathy to save the day… by turning the film into a musical. Full of classic songs like Singin’ in the Rain, Make ‘Em Laugh and Good Morning, Singin’ in the Rain is pure singing, dancing, laughing movie-watching joy.
