Singin’ in the Rain

A song on their lips, a skip to their step.

Maybe the best classical musical ever, this much-loved film was overlooked when it hit theaters, not making much bank, and earning just two Oscar nods.

Neither one of those nominations was for Best Picture, which looks even worse decades later, knowing the almost-unwatchable The Greatest Show on Earth beat High Noon for top honors.

But don’t worry, long after awards fade, the memory of Gene Kelly splashing through the night, gettin’ saucy with Cyd Charisse, and going toe-to-toe with Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds will last.

This one is forever.
