The greatest musical ever made? Many would vote for this exuberant valentine to the days when movies learned to talk. Gene Kelly plays a matinee idol torn between his love for the unknown but talented Debbie Reynolds and the girl who “ceen’t stand it”—better left silent film star Jean Hagen. Propelled by a crackling script and sparkling song-and-dance routines, this is Hollywood at its finest.
