"Singin' in the Rain" (1952)  Gene Kelly had what Fred Astaire didn't: sex appeal. This is why "Singin' in the Rain" is still a thrilling dance movie to watch more than 50 years later.

COVER GIRL: Kelly hit it big when M-G-M loaned him out for this splashy Columbia musical about a chorus girl (Rita Hayworth) whose stardom as a magazine cover model puts a strain on her relationship with the nice-guy club owner (Kelly) who gave her her break.
