Directed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN tells the hilarious story of what happened when Hollywood exploded with the advent of sound pictures ("Talkies").
Jean Hagen won high praise for her riotous performance as Lina Lamont, silent screen queen with the killer looks and a voice like sulphuric acid! Her voice is the main drawback for the bigwig studio producer (Millard Mitchell). Enter Kathy Seldon (Debbie Reynolds) who offers to dub Lina's dialogue and singing to save the studio from ruin.
Along the way Kathy falls for dashing leading man Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and cavorts with his energetic best friend Cosmo Brown (Donald O'Connor).
With the songs "Fit As A Fiddle", "You Were Meant For Me", "Would You?", "Broadway Melody", "Good Mornin'", and the show-stopping Title Song.
Interestingly enough, the voice you hear when Kathy is dubbing the song for Lina, "Would You?", is actually Jean Hagen singing, NOT Debbie Reynolds!
