Episode 105: Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen's 'Singin' in the Rain' (1952)

Episode Summary

In this episode, I talk about Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen's 1952 musical, "Singin' in the Rain." Often voted the greatest musical ever made, this effervescent and hilarious film looks at Hollywood's difficult transition from silent pictures to the talkies. Central to this episode is my focus on a film appreciation class I took in high school in 2004. It changed my life forever. One of the films I watched in that class was "Singin' in the Rain." I talk about why I fell in love with it and why I think it's such a wonderful film.
