Singin’ in the Rain (1935) Accorded legendary status by contemporary critics, this film is frequently
regarded as the best movie musical ever made. It offers a lighthearted depiction of Hollywood in
the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent
films to “talkies.” Directed and choreographed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, it stars
Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds.
It won a Golden Globe for Best Actor Award for Donald O’Connor, and was nominated for Best Picture, Best Music, and Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
- "What’s the first thing an actor learns? “The show must go on!’ Come rain, come shine, come snow, come sleet, the show MUST go on!" — Cosmo Brown (played by Donald O’Connor)
