If you liked "The Artist", you must come and watch "Singin' in the Rain", which was one of its sources of inspiration. Yet after 60 years, I find this film still much more entertaining and fun than The Artist. This is one of the classic Hollywood musicals, with some fantastic singing (obviously), dancing and comedy thrown in. Should be perfect on the big screen.
note: consider buying your ticket in advance!
In 1927, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a famous on-screen romantic pair. Lina, however, mistakes the on-screen romance for real love. Don has worked hard to get where he is today, with his former partner Cosmo. When Don and Lina's latest film is transformed into a musical, Don has the perfect voice for the songs. But Lina - well, even with the best efforts of a diction coach, they still decide to dub over her voice. Kathy Selden is brought in, an aspiring actress, and while she is working on the movie, Don falls in love with her. Will Kathy continue to "aspire", or will she get the break she deserves?
