Take a spin around the lamppost! Perhaps the best known and most universally loved Hollywood musical, Singin’ in the Rain is set in 1927 Hollywood as “talkies” are beginning to displace silent films. Stars Gene Kelly and Jean Hagen are an on-screen couple and play along with gossip that they’re an off-screen couple as well. Their studio employer, Monumental Studios, is initially dismissive of “talking pictures,” but when it becomes clear that silent movies are going away, they must scramble to adapt and their stars must adapt as well. The 1952 film also stars Donald O’Connor and a young Debbie Reynolds. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
