90 Years, 9 Days: ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ (1952)

On the first day of “Intro to Film,” the professor walked into the classroom, turned to the class, and said “Hi. Welcome to ’Intro to Film.’ Today, we’re going to watch ’Singin’ in the Rain’ because it’s perfect and it makes me happy.” With that, the movie started, and it was perfect.

There’s a reason that given a choice of essentially any movie he could think of the professor chose Gene Kelly’s ode to the Busby Berkeley era of musicals in the 1930s. It’s because “Singin’ in the Rain” is just about everything a movie should be.
