Considered by critics to be one of the best musicals of all time, the story is set in the late 20s and focuses on two stars making the transition from silent pictures into “talkies”—an impossible task for the female who has a voice like “nails on a chalkboard.” Songs like “Make Me Laugh,” “You Were Meant for Me,” and “Good Morning,” added to the famous title song and dance number by Gene Kelly, make this classic a treat for the eyes and ears.
