Christiansburg Library celebrates the 65th Anniversary of Singing in the Rain on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
Celebrate the 65th anniversary of the beloved Singing in the Rain.
Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor star in the 1952 classic "Singing in the Rain", one of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed - filled with memorable songs, lavish routines and Kelly's fabulous song-and-dance number performed in the rain.
Set during the advent of "talkies," Don Lockwood has risen to stardom during Hollywood's silent-movie era - paired with the beautiful, jealous and simple Lina Lamont. And when Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden, Lamont has her fired. But with the introduction of talking pictures, Lockwood finds his career in jeopardy after audiences laugh when they hear Lamont speak in her shrill voice for the first time... until the studio decides to use Selden to dub her voice.
