Singin' in the Rain is one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful film musicals ever made.

One of its stars was a then 17-year old Debbie Reynolds. She says she "worked like a dog" to be able to dance alongside Gene Kelly.

Since then Reynolds has been bankrupted twice and was married three times but is still performing at the age of 78.
