Singin in the Rain Synopsis

Talkies are coming and silent movie screen team Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) need to keep up with the new fangled technology. There's only one problem, Lina's speaking voice. That's the premise of this classic musical that co-stars Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor. But it is Kelly who really shines in director Stanley Donen's homage to Hollywood at the end of the 1920's.
