inside the mind

Best. Musical. Ever.

A musical send-up of the advent of talking pictures, starring Donald O'Connor, Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, with Jean Hagan and a cameo by Cyd Charisse.

This movie's got it all. Humor, romance, parody, wit. Gene Kelly in his prime (perhaps my second-favorite male dancer - fantastic backside he had in those days).

One of the best dance sequences on film ("Singin in the Rain"), and one of the funniest ("Make 'em Laugh").

It's colorful, bright and absurd... and contains a line my children have been quoting since they first saw it: "I make more money than Calvin Coolidge! Put together!" Jean Hagan is a riot.
