Singin' in the Rain

1952 Rated G 1hr 43m

Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor combine their talents in one of the greatest big-screen musicals ever made, a two-time Oscar nominee that includes the songs "Good Morning," "Make 'Em Laugh" and the iconic title tune. When Hollywood attempts the transition from silent films to talkies, a matinee idol (Kelly) hopes to make the cut. But he's hampered by a silent-movie queen (Jean Hagen) with a voice like fingernails on a blackboard.

There are no extras on this disc, but who needs them when the film looks and sounds as good as this one does? The DVD brings out the bright colors with which Stanley Donen filled this musical, and the 5.1 stereo (from recently discovered stereo tracks) makes this one of the best-sounding DVDs out there. This is a reference DVD that will turn any VHS junkie into a DVD fanatic.
