5 Times Debbie Reynolds Was Amazing in “Singin’ in the Rain”

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 look of love.
  • The time she jumped out of cake and impressed everyone at the party with her style and ability to not get covered in cake.
That’s more the expression I have on my face, when presented with cake (sans person inside the cake).
  • The time she managed to stand out while in a crowd of showgirls and kept dancing despite being slowly smothered by streamers.
She is amped by those flying streamers of death and distraction.
  • The time she looked absolutely stunning while perched on a ladder in an empty sound stage.
If this is what happens when you have good lighting, I am formally requesting that someone follow me around and properly light me all day every day.
  • The time relative newcomer held her own next to movie veterans, Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor.
