On 27th of March 1952, the musical comedy film Singing in the Rain, premiered at Radio City Music Hall in NYC.
The film starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds charted the rise of the talkies in the early history of film making.
The film took its time to become the popular movie it is today. Many of the dance sequences, choreographed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen have been replicated and parodied.
In 1989, Singin’ in the Rain was one of the first 25 films selected by the United States Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
