Movies don't get more iconic than this. Singing In The Rain is a timeless feel-good musical comedy. In 1920s Hollywood, Lina Lamont and Don Lockwood are the biggest stars of the silent screen and the tabloids' favourite celebrity “couple” (despite arguing constantly off-screen). When Monumental Pictures Studio decides to make the transition to talking pictures they have to contend with comically horrendous technical errors, Lina Lamont's diva behaviour and her painfully squeaky voice. Don teams up with his goofy and musically talented best friend Cozmo and the aspiring young actress Kathy to try and salvage the awful new film and save the studio's reputation. Everyone should experience Singing in The Rain at least once, if only to see Gene Kelly tap-dance through the rain on a lamp-lit street.
