Originally released in 1952, Singin’ in the Rain combines stars Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O’Connor, M-G-M’s song catalog, and a script by Betty Comden and Adolph Green combine to make what is regarded as the best musical of all time. Set in Hollywood at the end of the silent era, a dashing film star puts up with a vapid starlet, while falling in love with a humble chorus girl. Songs include “Make ‘Em Laugh,” “Good Morning,” “You Were Meant for Me,” and the title tune. Co-stars Jean Hagen; co-directed by Kelly and Stanley Donen.
We’ve taken a still from the film and added our own comedic caption to it, we encourage you to let the stormy clouds chase everyone from the place and add your own in the comments below!
“There are towels waiting for us, right?”
