Flashback Fridays: Tribute to Debbie Reynolds

Another legend passed away this week: Debbie Reynolds, just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher (aka Princess Leia in Star Wars)

She first became famous in her role in the movie Singin’ in the Rain as Kathy Selden, when she was just 17 years old. Her voice was incredible. I will focus on this film mainly to honour the late Debbie Reynolds. This is the movie I am most familiar with among her musical films and will be the focus of my blog post.  Her musical performances were memorable. She was very talented and funny. When she sang, she had a presence in the film.

The two best clips of her singing in the film were : Good Morning and Singin’ in the Rain. Debbie Reynolds performed Good Morning with Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor.  The rhythm was amazing with a fantastic melody. The scene where Reynolds was Singin’ in the Rain was hilarious when she is revealed to be singing after the curtains are opened behind Jean Hagen as Lina. Her voice was soft compliment the melody of the song.

Rest in Peace Debbie Reynolds. 😦

Here are videos that I loved the most of the film.
