When Gene Kelly filmed the famous dance sequence from Singin' in the Rain, he was actually singin' in the milk!
With the filming technology at the time, it was very difficult to capture small, clear droplets of rain on camera. To get around this, the filmmakers added milk to the mixture, making it more easily visible. Some other interesting facts about Singin' in the Rain:
-About $160,000 was spent on costuming. -Debbie Reynolds' singing ability was somewhat limited. In the scene where Debbie Reynolds' character Kathy is dubbing over the voice of Jean Hagen's character Lina Lamont, Hagen is actually dubbing over Reynolds! -As we stated in a previous fact (http://www.omg-facts.com/view/Facts/33713), Gene Kelly had a fever of 103 degrees when filming the famous dance sequence.
