Singin in the rain

Often cited as the greatest musical of all time, Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen’s satire about the early days of talking pictures is as fresh and funny as ever. Kelly plays Don Lockwood, a silent film matinee idol who faces an uncertain future with his hag-voiced costar Lina Lamont (a hilarious, Oscar-nominated Jean Hagen) when movies make the sudden transition to sound. In the role that made her a star, late El Paso native Debbie Reynolds (who appeared with this classic at PCFF 2010) plays Kathy, the young chorus girl looking for a Hollywood break while awakening the love of Don and incurring the wrath of Lina. The unforgettable score is made up of songs previously written for movie musicals in the 1930s by producer and lyricist Arthur Freed and composer Nacio Herb Brown.
