There are few movie scenes as serenely entertaining as watching Gene Kelly (and his umbrella accomplice) dance amidst a downpour in the classic 1952 film, Singing in the Rain. Both whimsical and downright masterful, it remains one of the most beloved movie moments of all time. So, if you need a little pick-me-up today, a reason to smile and reminisce, we can think of no better way than to take a moment and watch Gene Kelly work his cinematic magic.
Gene Kelly’s timeless performance has inspired countless performers over the years. Michael Jackson remarked that he considered Kelly to be his favorite dancer of all time. And in recent years, Usher even paid tribute to the film with his own tasteful version.
