Make 'em laugh, make 'em laugh. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Liam, Ethan, and Georgia as we're adapting from silent films to the talkies as we review the Gene Kelly classic, brought to us by BFF of the BFE, Rev. Bruce.  We're jumping out of a cake in our 147th episode as we discuss:

  • The demands made by Gene Kelly of his co-stars
  • Who are eyes are drawn to every time they're on the screen
  • A crazy story about Debbie Reynolds singing and spoken dubbing in the film.
  • Can someone simply not 'get' a musical?
  • We share our own histories in musicals
  • What are the challenges of musicals on the big screen versus the stage
  • Where did they get all the songs from?
  • What is with the two fever dream segments
  • Why Liam is reminded of Bruce Lee when watching Singin' In The Rain
  • Why does Kathy choose the final song she does - it makes no sense in universe
  • Georgia questions why she's not allowed an opinion, Ian makes a clarification
  • We're joined by Reverend Bruce who gives an impression of Jean Hagen you have to see to believe
  • Ethan might have the blooper of all bloopers in this episode
  • Whether or not Singin' In The Rain is the Best Film Ever
