1952: The movie musical "Singin' in the Rain," starring Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor, premieres in New York City. The film was only a modest hit when released and earned only two Oscar nominations, for supporting actress Jean Hagen and its score, but is now frequently described as one of the best musicals ever made and one of the greatest American films.
