My sis and I were talking about a movie made in the early 30s that had a plot similar to Singing in the Rain (i.e. Hollywood's transition from silents to talkies).  She remembered that it starred John Barrymore.  I seem to recall it, but we could not find any movie that fits this description in our research.  Perhaps it didn't star John Barrymore.  Does anyone have any knowledge of this movie?

I have a separate personal database where I have created my own categories, and Singing In The Rain is in my Hollywood category.  Looking through that, I also have this listed (but not on hand):

 

Once in a Lifetime (1932)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0023302/

 

Definitely sounds like what the OP had in mind. A more detailed plot description can be found on wiki:
