Synopsis

Widely considered to be the best musical ever made, Singin' in the Rain is an exuberant tribute to Hollywood. The movie is set in the 1920s when films, originally silent moving pictures with live musical soundtracks, turned into 'talkies' and actors could be heard as well as seen. Lina Lamont and Don Lockwood are a celebrated on-screen couple making the transition from silent films to sound. There's one problem: Lina's voice could shatter glass. Aspiring actress Kathy Selden is hired to provide Lina's singing and speaking voice, and she and Don fall in love. Lina is livid, and sets out to sabotage Kathy's chances - but will she succeed?
