Five(ish) Fangirls Episode #364: Talking Pictures


The early days of cinema included attempts at including sound, that never quite got off the ground. Eventually Warner Brothers changed the game with The Jazz Singer, while the rest of the studios were sent scrambling. In 1952, the Gene Kelly helmed  'Singin' in the Rain' was released, which satirized this era in spectacular technicolor and catchy song-and-dance. Join us as we take a look at this film that has managed to stand the test of time, despite the number of behind-the-scenes hiccups. Plus we've got some news and housekeeping.
