Earlier this year cable channel TCM screened a digitally enhanced 70th anniversary version of Casablanca. Coming this July 12th, if you so choose you will be able to see Singin’ In The Rain digitally enhanced for it’s 60th anniversary. It is my belief that if you like the musical genre, and enjoyed Music Man, The Sound of Music; you will enjoy this too. On my list of musicals it ranks number two.
I believe it is Gene Kelly’s greatest work and I still find myself singing many of the songs from this film. My favorite songs are Singin’ In The Rain (also the best scene from the movie), and Good Morning. Debbie Reynolds, Cyd Charisse and Donald O’Connor are excellent in this film as well. Cyd Charisse made such an impression on Janet Jackson that she appeared in a cameo in her Alright video.
