I think that had this film been made precode, the usual musical number that Anna Held sings might have been in front of an all-male audience. Maybe my mind is in the gutter or something, but the lyrics of the song she sings contain the phrase “ to play with me” which is provocative in itself. I’m surprised it made it past the code of that time.
I always watch Singing in the Rain. I think it’s because I must have been exposed to it as a very young child, and it’s so classy.
