Singin’ In The Rain Movie Summary

Singin’ In the Rain is a fun musical set during a pivotal time in Hollywood history. Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont (portrayed brilliantly by Gene Kelly and Jean Hagen) are the reigning box office sweethearts of the silent movie screen. We quickly learn that their romance is a studio publicity stunt when Don falls for aspiring starlet Kathy Selden played by a young Debbie Reynolds.

Change is brewing in Hollywood as talking pictures are introduced. Not every silent star has the voice or talent to make the transition to “talkies”. This is the story of a budding romance between Don and Kathy, the enduring friendship of Don and best friend Cosmo Brown and the sad struggle of Lina Lamont to hold onto her stardom and tabloid romance. How far is she willing to go?

This film is full of timeless songs and dances. In my humble opinion, it is one of the best musicals of all time. I think that the cast, the music, and the dancing create a true movie house memory.

You can tell that much of the dialgoue is ad-libbed, and like the classic golf-themed Caddyshack of the prior year, Stripes contains numerous quotable, classic lines...
