Gene Kelly's famous song and dance sequence from the title has become a household name.Added to this a young Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor and you have a film that connects both musically and with dance sequences that are colourful and imaginative even today....Donald O'Connor's rendition of "Make em laugh" shows how superfit and talented he was...In the background of the silent movies the competition into talkies made the big studios have to pull out all the stops..This is a talented if not tongue n cheek look at those times....Kelly is masterful with the Broadway Melody sequence with Cid Charise dancing charisma to enhance the mood...."You are my lucky star" is one of many heart stopping hits to top the romance love tale that intertwines between Kelly and Reynolds.......a tale of when Hollywood was at it's best in it's musical hey day and with an all star cast this is a must see musical for any fan of the genre and even for those who are not....Kelly is a genius..This blu-ray shines through with a multitude of fantastic colours especially in the Broadway melody sequence and "Beautiful Girl " song and dance sequence. Watch the tweed fibres of the fine detail in Gene Kelly's suit or the fine detail of the various shops and brickwork as Gene performs Singing in the rain.It's the first time I noticed the eye shadow Gene Kelly was wearing in the close up of his face at the start of the movie whilst he stood on the red carpet reflecting on his past career. You can even notice Debbie Reynolds trying to hold in the laughter as she mistakenly throws a cream pie into Jean Hagen's face (Lina Lamont) This blu-ray shows black bars either side as it was the old 4:3 aspect ration...i.e. square tv compared to widescreen but this doesn't take away from the fact it is a very worthy upgrade from dvd to a shining blu-ray example of the old movies shown in modern day 1080p high definition glory...buy it you'll be amazed
