  1. Dear Stefanie,

    I love the video with 10 Fun (Not-So-Fun for the actors) Facts about the movie. It is absolutely fascinating to dive into the behind-the-scenes details of “Singing in the Rain.” The challenges Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly faced, from their age gap to Kelly’s fever during the iconic rain scene, really highlight their dedication to the craft. The use of milk and water for the rain effect, the casting decisions, and the injuries during filming add a whole new layer of appreciation for the final product. And knowing that the “Good Morning” scene was a first-take success, despite hours of attempts to improve it, is incredible. These facts enriched my experience and deepened my admiration for the talent and hard work that went into creating this timeless classic. Thank you for sharing!
