Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain - Review
There is no movie musical more fun than Singin' in the Rain. Of course there are loads of other musicals, I have to see them someday. 
This musical is above all lighthearted and happy. It's made in 1952, that's a long time ago.
It's a movie about making  movies. The movie is a American musical comedy film.*laughing*

Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds  and Donald O'Connor must have rehearsed endlessly for their dance numbers, which involves alarming acrobatics.
Don Lockwood's (Gene Kelley) soaking wet 'Singin' in the Rain' dance number is the best performance in the movie. It's rain, if you know. 
My older sister always wanted to look old movies, but I didn't. But when I saw this movie, I changed my mind. :)
Well, enough of the endless talking about the movie. Let's go through the characters!
Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen)- She is hilarious. I always laugh when I see her. She has such a funny voice, if you have seen the movie, you know where I'm talking about.  She makes you laugh. *it's true*
Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds)- She has such a lovely voice and acting talent. I'm talking about the character and actress. So, both. She is sweet, kind and innocent. Don and she, they end up as a couple. *oops, spoiler! Sorry*
Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly)- He is a famous actor, in and out the screen. He was the mastermind in the movie. So, he meets Kathy Selden and falls in love with her. One day her brings her back home, and starts to dance in the rain! He doesn't mind getting wet, he only thinks about Kathy. Oh, I won't go on and on about romance, it would be quite boring. On to the next.
I couldn't find a lovely picture of Cosmo, so I have this gif.
Cosmo Brown (Donald O'Connor)- Cosmo is so funny, he makes you laugh too. I think more than Lina. He is the friend of Don and a actor too. Don and he dance a lot.

So, these are the main characters. There are loads of more, but than this post would be boring.

Now, just one thing, the dancing.
I must admit I don't rally like to dance, I would try it for one time, but looking at it is lovely.
Oh, again one thing, their is a scene with a woman with a green dress on. We skipped that part. So, you know.
