musical comedy

Musical comedy "Singin' in the Rain" was released on this day in 1952.

Starring Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds, the story follows 1920s actors and their transition from silent films to talkies.

The success of "The Jazz Singer" (1927), the first feature to include synchronized dialogue, steered the film industry into leaving behind silent movies in favor of talking pictures.

Though "Singin' in the Rain" only garnered moderate commercial success at the time of its release, the movie has since been hailed as the best film musical comedy of all time.
