Sample event image This joyous musical film, co-directed by Stanley Donen and acrobatic dancer-star-choreographer Gene Kelly, is a charming, up-beat, graceful and thoroughly enjoyable experience with great songs, lots of flashbacks, wonderful dances, casting and story. The film is set in 1927 and humorously satirises and parodies the panic surrounding the troubling transitional period from silents to talkies in the dream factory of Hollywood of the late 1920s as the sound revolution swept through. Song and dance replace the dialogue, usually during moments of high spirits or passionate romance and over half of the film is composed of musical numbers.
