For die hard fans of the movie If you want to know what time of the day Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds were rehearsing on any particular day in 1951, for example, you will find out This is one of my favorite movies so I loved it. Enjoyable and thorough play by play As a nerd who can or less quote this movie verbatim I really enjoyed the technical and behind the scenes data Of particularly pleasing note is the final section where the authors list as many of the cast and crew as can be identified with a birth death and bio based on data available This is a comprehensive text and worth the read. Might be too much information for those who have only seen the movie once or twice but for the diehard fan, like me, it is full of interesting and fascinating background information about everything related to the making of this musical classic. Interesting to read about the making of Singin in the Rain but sooo much detail A little too much for my taste. This analysis of the most beloved filmed musical study would appeal primarily to nerds like me who love the film and are than glancingly familiar with it However, access to YouTube videos enhances the experience, allowing the reader to view, say, the Moses Supposes number with a greater appreciation for its artistry than before Bios of the key players and creators provide added info, and just learning about Donald O Connor s early life is a true revelation I particularly enjoyed reading about the blocking of dance numbers and the problems encountered during many scenes, the ballet numbers with Kelly and Charisse in particular oh, that white veil, or rather, those veils, and the difficulties they caused Lavishly footnoted, illustrated, and Appendixed, this is a scholarly work as well as an entertaining one The appeal of the title dance number can be summed up in the phrase There is no better idea for a movie than to dance for joy. A well documented and exhaustive account of the making of a great American movie The authors have done a first rate job with their research, preserving for future generations the genesis of this masterpiece of moviemaking Bravo
