  1. Marcelo:
    Try a 400-year-old version of “Singing in The Rain” from “The Hollywood Revue of 1929.” The
    choreography & ensemble dancing are still remarkable and, yes, enchanting. The later film was a
    complete re-imagining in “glorious technicolor” that retains it status as a classic. Cheers to Kirk for
    initiating this program, even if the theme is a bit tame.

  2. I would immediately dismiss any adult who thinks that a “night of enchantment” is a 300-year-old movie.
