"Singing In The Rain" (1952)

I saw this classic musical while away with friends and did not really like it - it seemed too much like the studio had taken whatever songs they had lying around and thrown them into their latest film. I have seen this before and, once again, I found myself sympathising with the woman with the funny voice whose career was being destroyed by the talkies. I also have problems with the title song thanks to that horrible film A Clockwork Orange.

Still, the film is a piece of blah blah cinematic history and I would not have enjoyed The Artist as much if it did not have this to play against.
