I ain't people. I am a shimmering, glowing star in the cinema firmament  -  Jean Hagen as Lina Lamont

Debbie Reynolds did not know how to dance. Gene Kelly got her up to speed, she was 19, he 40.
The only time Cyd Charisee ever smoked in her life was for this dance sequence
♫ Moses he knowses his toeses aren't roses... ♫ ♪
 


  A sophisticated and imaginative story that could stand on its own without the musical segments, performed by a gifted cast at the top of their game

 

  Highly engaging musical numbers representative of the greatest ever filmed

 

  The Title song sequence when watched in context of what comes before sparks genuine movie magic.
