This gentle Hollywood satire remains the most exuberantly enjoyable of all musicals. Kelly plays silent movie star Don Lockwood, partner to the shallow Lina Lamont (Hagen). When Warners have a smash with The Jazz Singer in 1927, the days of the silent movie become numbered. For the studio, Lockwood's stardom is certain, but Lamont's future is looking uncertain due to her shrill voice, which doesn't record well. Further complications arise when Don meets and falls instantly in love with a young chorus girl, Kathy Selden (Reynolds), provoking jealousy from Lamont.
