DarkJade’s Films of Meaning – Singin’ In The Rain

by DarkJade

What do you get when you put together A Man That Can Float (Gene Kelly), A Man That Can Fly (Donald O’Connor), and A Woman Beyond Her Years (Debbie Reynolds)

Singin’ In The Rain…

The Story;

In 1927, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a famous on-screen romantic pair. Lina, however, mistakes the on-screen romance for real love. Don has worked hard to get where he is today, with his former partner Cosmo. When Don and Lina’s latest film is transformed into a musical, Don has the perfect voice for the songs. But Lina – well, even with the best efforts of a diction coach, they still decide to dub over her voice. Kathy Selden is brought in, an aspiring actress, and while she is working on the movie, Don falls in love with her. Will Kathy continue to “aspire”, or will she get the break she deserves? – Description Written by Colin Tinto

First of all, let me start by saying “Gene Kelly” is one of My Favorite All Time Entertainers…

And in this Film, he is Truly Something Special…

What’s to be said about Gene Kelly, He’s an Entertainment Icon whose Earned Every Ounce of his Accolade…

And Man Can He Dance… He’s My Favorite All Time Dancer

Accompanying him is Donald O’Connor

Man Can This Man Move… He Reminds me of the Absolute Essence of “The Wizard of OZ”

Fricken Unbelievable…

And Let us not Forget… “Debbie Reynolds

Only 19 Years Old when she did this Film, she took 3 Different Buses to get to Studio Rehearsals, and would sometimes Sleep Overnight in the Studio to avoid all of the Traveling…

She may have one of the “Greatest Work Ethics” in Hollywood ever… Not to mention she’s “Carey Fisher“‘s Mom…

Lol… Which Scores some Extra Points as far as I’m Concerned…

Even though The Original “Star Wars” was My Favorite Film, I didn’t actually like Princess Leia when I was a Kid, Lol

But I came Around in “The Empire Strikes Back

The Truth is, Carrie Fisher is Something Very Special, Just Like Her Mom…

And Just Like her mom, She was Also Very Young, Only 20-21, When She Did The Original “Star Wars”… Another Actress, Way Beyond Her Years.

Character Actors;

Yes “Singin’ In The Rain” Also had Brilliant Character Actors… Like The Studio Head “R.F. Simpson“, who was Great (The Guy in the Middle)…

But More than that, “Jean Hagan who played Lina Lamont

The “Not as Dumb as she Seemed“, Squeaky Voiced Silent Film Actress, who tries to pull one over on “Debbie Reynolds” Character, but in the end, she ends up in the Mud

She basically would have stolen the show, if she hadn’t been Surrounded by Genius…

Singin’ in The Rain” is a Comical…

Musical…

Masterpiece… And Should Be Missed By None…

Nuff Said

Thanks for Watching/Reading/Listening
