Singin' in the Rain

Kelly was singing, but Reynolds was crying

The Gene Kelly film Singin' in the Rain is considered a screen classic. The movie features Kelly's famous dance down a street during a pouring rain, and co-stars Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds doing a little hoofing themselves. What you might not know is that while Kelly and Reynolds fall in love on-screen, there was no love lost between them in real life. Kelly supposedly sniffed at Reynolds's lack of acting and dance experience, and the young starlet spent much of her time tending to her bleeding toes between scenes. 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday. River Oaks Theatre, 2009 West Gray. For information, call 713-866-8881 or visit www.landmarktheatres.com. $9.50.
July 2-3, 11:55 p.m., 2010
