Singin' in the Rain (1952)

Singin' in the Rain poster

Somehow I managed 45 years on the planet without ever seeing the classic film “Singin’ in the Rain” – until this evening. Saw that it was playing at the Castro Theater so decided it was time. Super saturated colors and great song and dance numbers. Some of the bits come across a little corny nowadays, but the dancing is great, and most of it is filmed in quite long takes.  The trio of Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds only do the title song briefly during the credits at the beginning (during the film Gene Kelly takes it solo). They don’t make ’em like they used to.
