The Big Picture


Shame I. Go Unites Man. Sometimes, you need to be my number. One is seeing the rain. Look. The might right here in the bush. Now you talked. The sound goes through the cable to the bucks, a man records I'm a big record in wax, but you have to talk into the mic I in the Bush. Giant again, perhaps you. You've seen it a million times and it. Brings you joy, if somehow you don't know what singing in the rain is a nineteen, fifty, two musical. Directed, by gene, Kelly and Stanley and starring Gene Kelly. Donald.

It's I wouldn't say it's quite cynical, but it is a movie. It set in the twenty S, and it is about the transition of Hollywood from silent films to. Talking movies and it is really about like the first musical ever made, and it is knowing and makes fun of the studio system and the studio machinery and movie stars. There is just a all time performance by Jean Hagen as Lina Lamont who is the silent film star who has a terrible voice and no one wants to hear her talk..
