Singin’ in the Rain is a film about the silent era of the ‘20s giving way to “talking pictures.” Superstar team Don Lockwood and Lena Lamont are pushed into making one of these newfangled talkies, but there’s only one problem—Lena has a horrible voice. When talented singer Kathy Selden is brought in to sing and talk for Lena behind the scenes, comedic and romantic shenanigans ensue. This classic 1950s musical takes a look at the changes in Hollywood ushered in by the era of sound.
