River Oaks Theatre Weekend Midnight Movie: Singin’ in the Rain
One of the most successful musicals ever, In the Rain is set at the beginning of the talkies. Silent film star Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen in an iconic dumb-blond role) has an incredibly shrill voice completely unsuitable for talkies, so the studio has Kathy dub her lines. Lina’s film partner, Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly), has fallen for Kathy and jealous Lina is determined to keep them apart. Kelly’s performance of “Singin’ in the Rain,” complete with pouring rain and slick city streets, became one of his most well-known routines.
