A bit of hilarious Irish blarney that gives a wonderful presentation of the give and take that a marriage needs to succeed. John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara star as the reluctant ex-boxer and his feisty bride who have problems with their egos and with her mean-spirited brother, played wonderfully by the great Victor McLaglen Director John Ford shows his usual flair for comedy.

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN transports viewers to the end of Hollywood’s silent-movie era, following famed actor Don Lockwood who falls in love with studio singer Kathy Seldon, with opposition from Don’s jealous co-star Lina Lamont, as they all struggle to transition from silent movies to “talkies.” SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN rightfully earns its reputation as a timeless classic through its delightfully phenomenal music, impressive choreographies, glamorous costumes, captivating set design, dynamic cinematography, and absolutely charming characters and morally uplifting, hilarious story promoting love, humility and honesty.
