Seen it before? No.
Usually my gripe with musicals is that the characters just randomly break into song at the drop of a hat. I had the opposite problem here. Clearly this movie's reason to exist is the song and dance numbers, but the characters kept breaking into plot. If it was just 90 minutes of musical numbers that would have been fine, but alas.
So the plot, such as it is... Gene Kelly and Jean Hagen play Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont, the Hollywood "it" couple of the silent era, and Donald O'Connor plays Don's
The songs are pretty classic, and Gene Kelly certainly could dance. Daniel watched it with us and totally cracked up during "Make 'Em Laugh". Good times.
Position on the list: 75
And now for something completely different: Now we're watching Reservoir Dogs. haha
