Singing In The Rain
Friday & Sunday, February 1 & 3 & 10
Starring Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds

 

If you enjoyed seeing Hollywood classics during the Christmas season, The Strand offers similar gems all year long!  Don't miss this Hollywood Golden Classic back on the Big Screen in 45 speaker surround-sound, about a silent film company making the difficult transition to sound.

Singin' in the Rain launched the storied career of Debbie Reynolds, who was cast in this film at just 19 years old.  Debbie appeared live at The Strand when we first reopened the theater back in 2009 as part of our grand reopening celebration!  She was still living with her parents at the time, and commuted to the set. She had to wake up at 4:00 a.m. and ride three different buses to the studio.  Sometimes, to avoid the commute, she would just sleep on the set.

Gene Kelly was a taskmaster with Debbie Reynolds, who had never danced to this degree before rehearsals started. Fred Astaire, who was in an adjacent dance studio, found her crying under a piano and reassured her that all of her hard work was worth the effort.

In the looping sequence, Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds) is seen dubbing the dialogue for Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) because Lina's voice is shrill and screechy. However, it's not Reynolds who is speaking, it's Jean Hagen herself, who actually had a beautiful deep, rich voice. So you have Jean Hagen dubbing Debbie Reynolds dubbing Jean Hagen. And when Debbie is supposedly dubbing Jean's singing of "Would You?" the voice you hear singing actually belongs to Betty Noyes, who had a much richer singing voice than Debbie.
