Don Lockwood et Lina Lemont sont le couple star du moment à Hollywood. Mais lorsque le parlant arrive, la voix de crécelle de Lina menace la carrière du duo...

Singing' in the Rain is a 1952 comedy musical film starring Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds and directed by Kelly and Stanley Donen, with Kelly also providing the choreography. It offers a comic depiction of Hollywood's transition from silent films to "talkies". The movie is frequently described as one of the best musicals ever made, topping the AFI's 100 Years of Musicals list, and ranking fifth in its updated list of the greatest American films in 2007.



PLOT

Hollywood - 1927: Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont is a famous couple of silent films. Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) is a popular silent film star with modest origins as a singer, dancer, and stunt man. Don barely tolerates his vapid, shallow leading lady, Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen), who has convinced herself that the fake romance their studio concocted and publicized is real.

While they embody on the screen passions the most romantic, in life Don Lockwood still resistant, insensitive to the assaults of Lina, he prefers Kathy Selden, which is a young debutante actress. While the film knows the revolution of the film speaking (and singing!), The director of Monumental Pictures studios, RF Simpson, offers to Cosmo Brown, a partner of Don Lockwood in its infancy, and his friend of ever, the post of musical Director.

He is immediately confronted with a thorny problem which is: how the couple Lockwood-Lamont will adapt itself to the talking movie? For Don Lockwood, singer and dancer made, the transition should work without problems. However, Lina Lamont has a horrible voice and a strong accent from Brooklyn, so the first of their new film turns to a disaster. To save the case, Cosmo Brown decides to convert the movie musical, and to double the voice of Lina by Kathy...


SONGS

Singing' in the Rain was originally conceived by MGM producer Arthur Freed, the head of the "Freed Unit" responsible for turning out MGM's lavish musicals, as a vehicle for his catalog of songs written with Nacio Herb Brown for previous MGM musical films of the 1929-1939 period. Screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green contributed lyrics to one new song.
All songs have lyrics by Freed and music by Brown, unless otherwise indicated. Some of the songs, such as "Broadway Rhythm", "Should I?" and most notably "Singin' in the Rain", were featured in numerous films. The films listed below mark the first time each song was presented on screen.

PRODUCTION

In the famous dance routine in which Gene Kelly sings the title song while twirling an umbrella, splashing through puddles and getting soaked to the skin, he was actually dancing in water with a little bit of milk added, so that the water puddles and raindrops would show up in the filming. Kelly was sick with a 103-degree fever at the time.

Debbie Reynolds was not a dancer at the time she made Singin' in the Rain — her background was as a gymnast. Kelly apparently insulted her for her lack of dance experience, upsetting her. Fred Astaire was hanging around the studio and found Reynolds crying under a piano. Hearing what had happened; Astaire volunteered to help her with her dancing. Kelly later admitted that he had not been kind to Reynolds and was surprised that she was still willing to talk to him afterwards. After shooting the "Good Morning" routine, Reynolds' feet were bleeding. Years later, she was quoted as saying that making this film and surviving childbirth were the two most difficult experiences of her life.
