Product Description

Amazon.ca

Bien des décennies avant que l'industrie hollywoodienne du film ne se distingue par des désastres financiers et de colossales productions de science-fiction, les studios de la Californie du Sud (et plus particulièrement ceux de la Metro Goldwyn Mayer) étaient célèbres pour leurs comédies musicales, phénomène cinématographique typiquement américain (et en voie de disparition). Ce n'est pas seulement un grand spectacle de danses et de chansons dans lequel figurent Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor et la fringante Debbie Reynolds mais aussi une truculente parodie de la transition du cinéma muet au parlant. Kelly incarne Don Lockwood, une vedette débonnaire et Jean Hagen incarne Lina Lamont sa partenaire dont la voix ridicule mais hilarante ne semble pas tout à fait correspondre aux nouvelles technologies et à son image glamour. Parmi les plus grands moments musicaux du film, on retiendra le merveilleux "Make 'Em Laugh", l'impressionnant "Broadway Melody" et bien sûr le mythique "Singin' in the Rain" dans lequel Kelly touche au sublime avec pour seuls accessoires un décor détrempé, un lampadaire et un parapluie. --Jim Emerson

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

'Singin' in the Rain' arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.37:1 encode. Warner Bros. is rejuvenating catalog classics with loving remasters and impressive video transfers. 'Singin' in the Rain' is given a similar treatment; just not one that lives up to the high standards set by 'Ben-Hur' and 'Casablanca'.

Positive: Colours have been granted new life. Primaries are gorgeous. Skintones are lovely (albeit a touch over-saturated now and again). Black levels are rich and savory, and contrast does not falter. Moreover, print scratches and blemishes are nowhere to be found. Grain, though light, is pleasant and consistent.

Negative: The film's inherent softness can be prohibitive, and a noticeable waxiness afflicts a number of closeups and midrange shots, probably due to artificial sharpening. Mild to moderate edge halos are present throughout the film.

Overall, it is still a vast improvement over previous DVD releases (4/5)

AUDIO:

The high point of Warner's AV presentation is undoubtedly its carefully mixed DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which retains the humble qualities of the film's original monoaural sound design while allowing Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed's music to flourish across the entire soundfield. Dialogue and song lyrics are clean, clear and perfectly prioritized, be it Gene Kelly's dulcet singing voice, Donald O'Connor's chirpy quips and verbal gymnastics, or Debbie Reynolds' velvet-smooth tone. Various songs, from 'Good Morning' to 'Moses Supposes' to 'Make 'Em Laugh' to 'You Were Meant for Me' are a joy to listen to. The orchestra's instrumentation is also extremely well done, just a full, utterly satisfying sound from beginning to end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, TERRIBLE EDITION Oct. 21 2002
Format:DVD
"Singin' in the Rain" is one of my favorite films, and I am in good company with that opinion -- everyone from Roger Ebert to Francois Truffaut has rated the film in their top ten. So why such shoddy treatment in this "Special Edition"?? 95% of the "commentary" is audio cribbed from the documentaries on Disk 2 (did they think we wouldn't watch both?) and the other 5% is Baz Lurhmann promoting his own films. While brilliance is floating across the screen, the commentary treats us to such prescient details as the flower preference of the producer (orchids) and how one of the minor actors in the film felt about Clark Gable (loved him very much). Since neither orchids nor Clark Gable have anything to do with this extremely influential film classic, couldn't we have given those comments a miss? As a huge fan of this film, I bought the edition knowing a fair amount about the making of and history surrounding it -- if it is possible, I left this viewing of the film with "commentary" actually knowing less. Give this edition a miss and buy a cheaper one. (Added note: another person has complained about the aspect ratio being altered -- in fact, Singin' in the Rain was NOT shot in "Cinemascope" and has been transferred with the full picture intact. See? Now THAT'S the sort of stuff they should have mentioned in the commentary!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Classic... March 17 2013
By Nath
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't know what it is about this film but classics always get to me. You cannot go wrong with this film. The quality of that movie is the best and I enjoy showing this movie to my children. Hoping a new generation will learn to love the classics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Grungy Audio, cuts in major dance scene April 25 2003
Format:DVD
... Unfortunately, this 2-disc "improvement" is a [disappointment]. The digitally remastered sound is harsh and grungy. Worst of all, there's a horrendous piece of censorship in Gene and Cyd's classic Broadway Melody dance number, a cut so obvious that it verges on sheer, criminal stupidity. I'm returning this 2-disc edition and searching for an uncut version to replace my ancient home-made VHS tape from the early 80's off a PBS station, where this dance scene is complete (and really gorgeous). What a shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars No No No!! Wait for the Special Edition! Aug. 17 2002
Format:DVD
The movie gets a five, but the package gets a zero in this cheap-o DVD edition. We know there are out-takes (an entire number by Reynolds) and we know there are other materials out there (you can find them on the anniversary VHS edition) but some chintsy exec at MGM gave us zip zero nada on this DVD version!
Yes, this IS the greatest movie musical of all time, bar none. It deserves top drawer treatment, and not the kind of packaging usually reserved for bargain B movies. Shame on MGM. Shame shame shame!
Do not settle for this bottom-of-the-line package. Hold out for a special edition of this American gem!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, Lousy Reproduction Aug. 20 2001
Format:DVD
5 Stars for the Musical 0 Stars for the DVD conversion. I can't say enough about the movie, I've loved it for years. However, this is one of the worst presentations of a Technicolor film available. It was as though the source media was an old faded copy that had the brightness turned up and color over driven to make up for it. Some scenes had the brightness so high it was dificult to make out the facial features of a sweet Debbie Reynolds. They should have presented it faded. Seriously consider waiting for a restored version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Points off for half-hearted presentation May 14 2001
By M. Cho
Format:DVD
First off, let me reiterate that this truly is one of the best movies, musical or otherwise, of all time. My issue is with the utter lack of respect with which Warner now treats this movie. There are three things I have to say: 1) I love this movie; 2) I love DVD; 3) seek out the old widescreen VHS (which also has a good, long interview with writers Comden & Green as well as Debbie Reynolds singing "You are My Lucky Star", a great sequence unfortunately cut from the final version).
