Last night I went saw “Singin’ in the Rain” (1952) for the first time at the theater celebrating the 60th anniversary of the movie. I am glad that I got to experience my first watching the movie at the theater.
While I was sitting there waiting for the movie to start, I had to stop myself from Googling the movie. I had no idea what the movie was about. All I knew about the movie is that it starred Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds and that Gene Kelly sang and danced
“Singin’ in the Rain.” Other than that, I was clueless on what the movie was about.
From the start of the movie, I had a big smile on my face. And whenever there was a close-up of Gene Kelly… it took my breathe away! He was so damn handsome in that movie. Seeing this movie, only made me love Gene Kelly even more.
Beside it being one of the greatest musical, the movie has one of my all-time favorite songs in the world… “Singin’ in the Rain” sung by Gene Kelly.
I think, whenever I’m walking in the rain, I sing this song in my head. The other songs in the movie are not too shabby either, “Make ‘em Laugh” and “Good Morning“. Donald O’Connor was amazing when he sang and danced to “Make ‘em Laugh.”
I highly suggest that whenever one of the classic movies is playing at a local theater near you, go and see it. Check out Fathom Events — Fathom and Turner Classic Movies, to see what’s coming to your local theater.
