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
