Singin' in the Rain Gene Kelly Debbie Reynolds fathom events

Singin’ in the Rain is universally renowned as one of the greatest musicals of all time. In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked it as the fifth greatest film ever made. 2017 marks the 65th anniversary of the film’s release in 1952 and to commemorate the event, Fathom Events and TCM’s Big Screen Classic series have brought it back to theaters for two days only. Not only do audiences get to take in a pure classic, but they also get to pay a final respect to the late great Debbie Reynolds, whose career was launched thanks to the film. I have attended and reviewed many of the screenings from Fathom and TCM and this one had the largest crowd by far. The show was sold out; my family and I sat in the very top row, and the 7:00pm show was sold out by 1:30 in the afternoon.

Reynolds’ death comes just one day after the passing of her daughter, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, who died yesterday at 60 years old. While on a flight from London to Los Angeles on December 23, 2016, Fisher had gone into cardiac arrest and reportedly stopped breathing, and had been in the hospital ICU in the days before her death.

MP3 Deal: ‘Singin’ In The Rain – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’

Today’s MP3 deal of the day over at Amazon today is the soundtrack to the movie Singin’ In The Rain for only $2.99.

I know, some of you are kneeling over in shock that I’m writing about music that isn’t metal (hey, that’s not even rock!), but I am still a movie lover, and let me tell you, I LOVE movie soundtracks and scores, especially if they’re from a musical.

This one is a true classic movie and one of the greatest musicals ever. I’m planning on listening to the soundtrack all night and think about my dearly departed loved ones who introduced me to classic movies like Singin’ In The Rain as a child (excuse me, I’m getting verklempt just thinking about it).

The 1952 musical comedy starred the singing and dancing talents of Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds — that’s Princess Leia’s mom for all you geeks out there, and that was enough for me to watch the movie when I was little.
