Singin' in the Rain
This humorous, nostalgic and original screen musical is based on the Hollywood's awkward transition from silent pictures to 'talkies'. Bursting with memorable tunes and dazzling with its all-star cast (including Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen and Cyd Charisse), it seems the natural choice for our next Kids' Classic instalment.
"You could make the argument that Singin' in the Rain
should be the first movie anyone sees, especially small children. Infectious, colourful, sprightly, funny, tuneful, the movie has a vividly likeable hero in Kelly..., a sly goofball in O'Connor... and a dimbulb villainess whose hilarious nasal screeching... your kids will imitate until you beg them to stop" - Ty Burr, The Best Old Movies for Families
