Say "Good Morning!" because we are ready to "Make 'Em Laugh" while "Singin' in the Rain!" Okay, that was revoltingly corny, and we will not be doing any of those things - but Gene Kelly did! And we're here to celebrate by shoehorning in as many puns as possible. In this episode, we celebrate the 70th birthday of "Singin' in the Rain," a movie that was virtually shutout from the Academy Awards and barely featured any original songs, yet somehow went on to be crowned the greatest movie musical ever by the American Film Institute. We explore the tyrannical directing style of Gene Kelly, the charming and captivating performances of Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor, and try to figure out why there is a Broadway-themed medley in the middle of a movie about a cavalier. Plus, was "Make 'Em Laugh" ripped off from another movie? Did this film about lip syncing actually have lip syncing itself? Do we kind of feel bad for Lina Lamont now? As always, If you have comments, questions, or personal misheard-lyric stories, you can send them to [email protected].
