"Singing In The Rain" should be selected as a National Film Treasure. {Maybe it already is) Directed by both Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly it remains known by all as a film masterpiece. We may never see such dancing on film like this again. Along with Gene Kelly, we cannot forgot the great performances of co-stars Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor. Gene Kelly of course found more ways to tap dance in puddles while singing the title song. That song alone was a big hit in 1952 when the movie came out. Donald O'Connor made dance history as far as I am concerned. His "Make Em Laugh" showed his acrobatic genius. Wait to you see what he can do while dancing, changing hats and doing back flips. I see that many patrons are waiting for the movie, and that gives me a good feeling. You still want to watch a classic movie like "Singing in the Rain". Thanks to KCLS for making the movie available to us all!

5 stars. Seen it many times and am always ready for another view.

This is a GREAT CLASSIC MOVIE!!!! This, along with The Wizard of Oz, Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments, It's a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol, The King and I, The Sound of Music, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers are other great classics that you must watch if you haven't already!

Considered one of the Top 10 classic 'English' movies (my researched #4). This is the top musical, followed by "The Wizard of Oz" at #10. "'Singin' in the Rain" is my favourite musical, with superb dancing and comedy sequences. _____ As an aside, how can so many of the classic movies on this site end up with an Average Rating of two stars out of five? Why are these individuals assigning stars of 0.5 and 1, given the fact they seldom take the time to provide Comments to support their low ratings? _____See my GerryD Lists for other classic movies.

the second-best musical film in the history, the top is "the sound of music".

This classis MGM Musical is like no other. Cyd Cyresse
and Gene Kelly dance beautifully together.
One can not compare the STARS of today with the real talent that once was.

Ottawa Library needs more copies of this movie, the lineup is too long!

My sister thinks this is the best tap-dance musical ever, and I have to agree.

I wouldn't call it a spoof of the early days of "talkie" films, but it sure was good and corny. I enjoyed the singing and the dancing and the comedy and the mean girl vs. the sweet innocent babe who gets to marry the big star.
