Gene Kelly: Singin' in the Rain (1952)

Gene Kelly’s seemingly effortless and graceful dance style brought in moviegoers by the millions in the heyday of the Hollywood musical in the 1940s and 1950s. With his charm, good looks and undeniable talent, he took dance from being seen as something for “sissies” to putting it on par with sports as an expression of skill and athleticism for men.

His crowning achievement — and often considered the most popular and admired musical of all time — was 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain. Enjoy this clip of him performing the title song, and marvel at the fact that although he was suffering from a 103° F fever at the time, he still managed this unforgettable performance. – AJW
