The 5th Hall Of Fame Inductee Representing Comedic Film - Singin' In The Rain (1952) - Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen

One of those movies you could watch any day of the week, there is no film that is a greater expression of joy than Singin’ In The Rain. Full of the most wonderful of song-and-dance numbers from Nacio Brown and Arthur Freed, they are beautifully performed, as is the movie as a whole by principals Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds. Furthermore, it’s the best movie about moviemaking, and primarily through Jean Hagen’s Lina Lamont a spiky little satire on Hollywood. Full of fun and cheeky jest, this is easily among the most easily watchable and entertaining films ever made.
