Directors: Gene Kelly; Stanley Donen

Writers: Adolph Green; Betty Comden

Producer: Arthur Freed

Keywords: Musical Comedy, Hollywood, Tap Dancing

Set in the period where silents gave way to talkies, silent stars Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont have an on-screen romance while actually despise each other. By chance encounter Lockwood now has a girlfriend; Lina finds her voice particularly unsuitable for talking pictures. Probably the best musical written specifically for the screen; superb performances, with musical numbers very nicely integrated into the story. Received Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actress and Best Score. Entered 1989 into the National Film Registry.
