What’s the first thing an actor learns? “The show must go on!’ Come rain, come shine, come snow, come sleet, the show MUST go on!

Singin’ In the Rain (1952)

What’s the first thing an actor learns? ‘The show must go on!’ Come rain, come shine, come snow, come sleet, the show must go on!

When I saw this at the Chinese Theater in LA, Debbie explained how she once passed out during the filming of this sequence. She then woke up to a bucket of freezing cold water being poured over her head. She was allowed two hours of rest while they redid her hair and makeup, then she jumped right back into the scene as if nothing happened. 

Talk about badass. It was worth it Debbie!
