25. 'Singin' in the Rain'

The 1952 film was directed by Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly and centers on Don Lockwood (Kelly), a silent-film star who finds his career threatened when movies switch to "talkies" and the nails-on-a-chalkboard voice of his female costar (Jean Hagen) could torpedo their newest film. To save their movie, Don, musician Cosmo (Donald O'Connor), and Don's girlfriend, Kathy (Debbie Reynolds), work to change the movie to a musical, with Kathy's skilled singing voice dubbing over that of Don's costar.
