Singing in the Rain (1952)

My youngest got this out of the library because it is a film that was technically difficult to make when it was done, and because it is a classic.  The one thing that I loved about it was that it pretty accurately depicted to Hollywood studio situation prior to modern day, where actors were under contract to a studio, and they had little choice about who did what for whom.  The story is very mundane, even as romantic comedies go.  A big star meets a woman who intrigues him from the beginning, and she has no interest in him.  Up until the time that she develops an interest and then they are a thing.  No big surprise there.  The singing and dancing are superb, and make the movie well worth watching, even though it is terribly dated.
