‘Singin’ In The Rain’ Movie Summary

Singin’ In The Rain takes place in 1927 at the dawn of “talkies” in Hollywood. Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are two silent-film era stars that made many pictures together due to their on-screen chemistry. However, after the success of The Jazz Singer, the first feature-length motion picture with actual speech, the duo finds they too must make a “talkie” if they want to continue working in Hollywood. Unfortunately, Lina has a shrill voice which doesn’t match her on-screen persona. Enter Kathy Selden. She’s a young singer with lots of talent, but no star power. The studio decides to dub her voice in for Lina’s in the film which becomes a massive success. Will that result in Lina continuing on in pictures, or will Kathy become the star she wants to be?
