Singin' in the Rain remains one of the best loved films ever made. In a shot-by-shot analysis of the famous title number, Peter Wollen shows how Gene Kelly binds the dance and musical elements into the narrative, and convincingly argues that the film was the high point in the careers of those who worked on it.

PETER WOLLEN taught film at UCLA. He is the author of several books,
including Signs and Meaning in the Cinema, first published in 1969 and reprinted
in a new edition in 2012, and the co-writer (with Mark Peploe) of Michelangelo
Antonioni's The Passenger (Professione: Reporter) (1974).

GEOFF ANDREW is Head of Film Programme at BFI Southbank, and was
previously Film Editor of Time Out London. He is the author of two volumes in
the BFI Modern Classics series, The 'Three Colours' Trilogy (1998) and 10 (2005),
and of The Films of Nicholas Ray: The Poet of Nightfall (2004).
