Singin` In The Rain is widely considered the greatest ever Hollywood musical. Possessing all the magic ingredients of star quality in Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds with the most amazing dance sequences, memorable songs, story line and laugh out loud comedy. The setting is 1927 Hollywood during the transition from silent movies to talkies with Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) the darlings of the silent silver screen. Off screen, Don, aided by his happy-go-lucky friend and piano accompanist, Cosmo Brown (Donald O`Connor), has to dodge Lina`s romantic overtures, especially when he falls for chorus girl Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds).
With the advent of sound in motion pictures, it is decided to turn Don and Lina`s new film into a talkie and a musical at that. The only problem is Lina`s voice, which could shatter glass. Don`s brainwave to get Kathy to dub over Lina`s speaking and singing voice in secret backfires when Lina finds out about the romance...
