Ali’s review published on Letterboxd:
52 Years in 52 Weeks: 51/52
Set in 1927, the careers of silent film stars Don and Lina are turned upside down after the release of the first talkie. In short, this is a movie about making movies and it's utterly delightful. Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds are a perfect starring trio and Jean Hagen is unforgettable as the beautiful, squeaky-voiced villain. The dance numbers are technically brilliant and often quite hilarious-- "Make 'Em Laugh" blew me away and "Moses Supposes" won't get out of my head, which I hardly even mind. There's no doubt this is one of the most agreeable and entertaining films ever made.
