    Singin' in the Rain (MGM, 1952). French Grande (47" X 63"). When the accolades rain, they pour, and this Gene Kelly vehicle shows no drought of praise. Named among the best musicals, the reputation of the film has only grown, and it's now regarded among the best films ever. Incredibly, the script was inspired by pre-existing songs -- like an action film written around the stunt sequences -- but somehow the writing holds up just as well as the songs. Betty Comden and Adolph Green crafted a self-reflexive ode to Hollywood that takes the industry's conversion to sound as its setting. Every performer, from Kelly to clown-prince Donald O'Connor, elevates the merriment and music to dizzyingly transcendent levels, a satire set free from cynicism. This is a beautiful French original release poster which has some fold wear and a small chip out of Gene Kelly's face in the upper part of the poster. Otherwise the poster is in amazingly fresh, unrestored condition. The Europeans certainly overshadowed the American design of the fifties, as is evident with this image. Fine.
