There is no end to the list of things I love about Singin’ in the Rain.
Here are five times Debbie Reynolds as Kathy Selden did something that I could never pull off.
- The time she employed the grade school flirting tactic of making fun of and heckling a guy and actually successfully impressing him.
- The time she jumped out of cake and impressed everyone at the party with her style and ability to not get covered in cake.
- The time she managed to stand out while in a crowd of showgirls and kept dancing despite being slowly smothered by streamers.
- The time she looked absolutely stunning while perched on a ladder in an empty sound stage.
- The time relative newcomer held her own next to movie veterans, Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor.
