"Rain brings life. Rain makes everything around us alive," said Richard Rose, director of "Singin' in the Rain". "The fact that rain brings life wasn't lost on Betty Comden and Adolph Green when they wrote 'Singin' in the Rain'. We take great joy in watching a young child play in a mud puddle because we see joy and renewal. It's the perfect image of freedom; there's not a care in the world, even a downpour couldn't dampen happiness."
