"Moses supposes" -- 'Singin' in the Rain' (1952) - my 5 month old cracks up when I recite this to him!
For those who you who THINK you know "Singin' in the Rain" because you CLAIM to have heard the title ditty on "Glee" and PROFESS a great love of the song DESPITE having never seen the original movie, all I can say is: Puh-leez. Watch the thing. It's pure fizzy filmic joy.
Singin' in the Rain (1952) is one of the most-loved and celebrated film musicals of all time from MGM, before a mass exodus to filmed adaptations of Broadway plays emerged as a standard pattern. It was made directly for film, and was not a Broadway adaptation.
