Good Morning, Good Morning, It’s Great to Stay Up Late

Singin’ in the Rain, they just don’t make movies like this anymore. If you have ever loved musicals, then Singin’ in the Rain is an absolute must see. Chances are you’ve heard of the movie at some point in your life. Gene Kelly’s Singin’ in the Rain sequence is legendary. Something I have tried to recreate once or twice in my life. I knew I had to watch it when my parents told me it was one of their favorite movies. How right they were. My brother and I watched it and we loved it. Singin’ in the Rain is about the transition between ย silent films and sound films. Many silent actors back in the 20’s didn’t have the voice for sound. Some people might not realize that singing and dancing was a requirement in old Hollywood. In fact, one of the funniest jokes in the movie is a character that Jean Hagen plays. One of many comedic performances truly deserving of an Oscar (she was nominated). The songs are some of the best in any musical. Such as, the title song, “Good morning,” or “Make em’ laugh.” The dance numbers are amazing. Especially for how elaborate and athletic they are. The performances are all so splendid. It’s worth noting that this is Debbie Reynolds most iconic role (may she rest in peace). Also worth mentioning is the 100% rating it has maintained on Rotten Tomatoes. Really, what more is there to say about Singin’ in the Rain.
