Movie Musicals Challenge –
Singin’ in the Rain

September 16, 2016 Just for Fun, Movies 6

I am SO BEHIND on my Movie Musicals Challenge! This one is only number 5 out of 25. Yikes. Looks like I might have to extend this challenge on into 2017… maybe 2018, haha.

Anyway — Singin’ in the Rain is another one of my favorite classic films. Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, and Debbie Reynolds are the perfect trio. The dance scenes are so impressive! The movie took me twice as long to watch as it ought to have, since I watched the best dance sequences twice….

I really wish I had more to say about this movie, but I didn’t take notes while watching like I usually do — I decided to just have a bit of fun and not worry about content for a blog post. Oops?

So, talk to me. Have you watched it, and did you like it? Do you have a favorite dancing scene?

    Yay, love this movie! Definitely makes sense that it is the number one film on the AFI list. 🙂 I’m partial to the Singing in the Rain sequence of course, but I also love that ballet/dance/dream sequence thing. So gorgeous and Cyd Charisse is perfection!

    I’m behind on the challenge too – but I watched two musicals this weekend, and hope to catch up soon! It’s hard to find the time!

      Haha, well I’m glad I’m not the only one who is behind! It is definitely hard to find time these days, but the good thing about self-imposed challenges is that they can be as flexible as you need them to be.

    I love Singing in the Rain except for the part where Gene Kelly dances with Cyd Charisse. That part is just weird. I love Lana and her voice, “I can’t stand him.” Best ever.

      That’s one thing I never “got” about some of these old musicals — the seemingly random ballet/modern dance scenes. I mean, I actually LIKE ballet, and Cyd Charisse is lovely and so talented… it’s just that I felt that it didn’t fit so well with this movie (and some others)?
