#7. SINGIN’ IN RAIN (1952): Most people will always attribute the dancing styles of Gene Kelly on this film, but the real scene stealer title is rightfully placed on Donald O’Connor! The man was literally made of elastic as he could ricochet off walls and dance floors like a rubber ball. The highlight would have to be the “Make Em Laugh” number in which O’ Connor’s character, Cosmo Brown, stops at nothing to do what it takes to get a smile when the going gets tough! I would unjustly be moving forward without mentioning Kelly’s fancy footwork throughout the film.
I can only brace myself for what will, no doubt be, a hailstorm of pelting comments to my selections! Let them fly!
