In 1952, just after Gene Kelly's An American in Paris was regaled with Oscar glory, producer Arthur Freed created the first "jukebox" musical that tore through the MGM songbook for unused songs and constructed a story around them set in in the late 1920s Hollywood during the transition from silent films to "talkies". Singin' in the Rain would become one of the most enduring musicals of all time and would become the launchpad for a young actress named Debbie Reynolds. But does the film deserve to prance in the puddles or is it a total wash? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Chris put on their dancing shoes to find out.
