I love classical movies.
Black and whites.
I love them so much,
it was a "requirement" for Brandon to watch at least one musical a month
with me if he wanted to date me.
Of all the musicals I've made him sit down and watch,
this is his favorite.
Which is perfect for me,
seeing how it's one of my favorites.
All you really need to know is this movies stars the one and only,
Plus, it's sweet, funny, romantic, and filled to the brim with fantastic singing and dancing
(in the rain, of course.)
I could give you the whole commentary,
with behind the scene info for every scene,
but I suggest you watch it yourself.
I don't want to be "that girl."
These video's alone should be enough to make you rent this movie asap.
This first one is a side by side shot of Gene Kelly (on the left) in the "Singin' in the Rain" scene from the movie, and Usher (on the right) reenacting the entire scene. The voice you hear is Gene Kelly's. I love love love it. It's nice to see present day "popular" artists give respect to the originals.
(Ooookay, maybe I will be "that girl." But just this once.) During this entire scene, Gene Kelly had a fever of about 101. I think they did 2 entire takes of this song. He went through before hand and had them create puddles in places he knew he would be splashing and dancing in. And (last one) the "rain" is actually a mixture of milk and water so it could be seen easier.
If you want to hear Usher's cover, here is the video of just him.
Can you marry a musical? I think it'd be a good addition to the family. Husband?
If I could've, I probably would've married Gene Kelly. Yep. (lol)ReplyDelete
I love every "old movie" out there!If only they still made movies like this today!ReplyDelete
