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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Special Features

The 50th-anniversary double-disc reissue of arguably the best musical ever gives us the goods. No flimsy "featurettes" here: a 90-minute Great Performances program from 1996 on the Arthur Freed unit at MGM anchors the extra disc. A new 35-minute documentary hosted by Debbie Reynolds gives a thorough once-over of the film's history--much of which is also found in the excellent commentary track featuring most of the major players. The source material of the songs is included, with an option for the viewer to directly link to the original production numbers while watching the film. The disc also delves into the film's plot--when sound entered film, with glimpses of The Jazz Singer and other early talkies. Audio recording sessions and deleted songs are some of the other treats. Last but not least is a knockout remastering of sound and picture, making the movie look and sound better than ever. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you like gene kelly and musicals youll like this. Musicals had their heydey in the 40s and 50s and MGM had them in colour and even the more lacklustre betty grable musicals were in colour, not many films were meaning they were willing to spend money on them and budgets, people came to see them i find them fun, almost like a variety show. There are many musical stars i like kelly and judy garland(who made to few)..there are many other famous dancers fred astaire and others..Kelly i like and its hard to figure out why? Here we have debbie reynolds donald oconnor a star studded cast and many musical numbers make'em laugh and others. At the end of the film we recall Kelly and the film is meant to revolve around him and Reynolds(and she does a great commentarty)..its an ironic film in a way the rain scene is wonderfully filmed and the dancing is great..on these musicals the stunts the dancing and the film are well choreographed and its exciting..athletic and gymnastic oriented kelly was in shape and muscular..its a thrill to watch him go through the gyrations almost perfect like turning a critic into an admirer..thats why people are hesitant to make musicals at times but some famous names have tried catherine zeta jones anne hathaway..and are the women as good as dancers as the men. IN terms of gymnastics and gyrations and other manipulations its not fair to compare the two..in that sense fred astaire and ball room dancers type..the AStaire film is a different form of dancing..Kelly is really startling..here theres a script..about love and this film is about youth..love and its power and hows Kelly come across it seems sentimental and all too nice it was..and meant to be..and they seem pleasent in this musical love sonnet..a musical love melodrama..i like the Kelly type musical..Read more ›

It's hard to believe that there may be some people out there who have not seen Singin' In The Rain but if you are one of them, this new digital remastered version is an absolute treat. It's 1927 and Hollywood is in a turmoil because the first sound film has been released. Suddenly, all the silent stars must learn to speak. For Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) this is no problem but for his squeaky-voiced co-star played by Jean Hagen it is a huge problem.
With the help of his long-time pal Donald O'Connor, Gene begins to revamp his latest film into a talkie. To complicate matters, he falls for rising star Debbie Reynolds and that just irritates Jean Hagen all the more.
The problems eventually get ironed out and in the process we get some great singing and dancing numbers including O'Connors exhausting "Make 'Em Laugh" and Kelly's "Broadway Melody" fantasia which includes an appearance by Cyd Charisse. There's never a dull moment and not one second-rate song in this great film.
No wonder it is considered one of the top Hollywood musical films of all time.

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.

LA meilleure comédie musicale de tous les temps ! Il faut cependant l'écouter en anglais pour l'apprécier pleinement. Tout de «casting» est exceptionnel et citer un numéro/chanson plutôt qu'un autre serait une injustice. Je voudrais cependant exprimer une préférence pour un numéro et une comédienne: «Broadway melody» et la très belle et immortelle Cyd Charisse. En passant, il faut écouter les suppléments: les comédiens encore vivants ont certes vieillis, mais on sent encore chez eux la passion qui les a animé lors de la réalisation de cette merveilleuse comédie musicale.
