About the titles:
“Singin’ In The Rain”
Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor star in one of the greatest musicals ever filmed. Set during the advent of “talkies,” this film’s classic song-and-dance numbers celebrate the beginning of movie musicals. Jean Hagen was Oscar-nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role as was Lennie Hayton for Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture. Stanley Donen and Kelly directed, Arthur Freed produced and Betty Comden and Aldoph Green wrote the screenplay.
Based on T.H. White’s “The Once and Future King,” this lavish film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical celebrates a fleeting, mythical time of love and chivalry--the reign of King Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table. Although torn apart by the conflicts between passion, love, honor and duty, it was a golden era that could have been ... and could yet be. Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave are among the stars of Lerner and Lowe’s musical based on their Broadway shows. Josh Logan directed and Jack L. Warner produced.
”What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?”
Bette Davis and Joan Crawford star as two aging sisters -- both former celebrities --bound together in a psychopathic relationship by their mutual dependency, jealousy and hatred in this classic shocking thriller. Robert Aldrich produced and directed the film which was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Davis and Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Victor Buono.
