A fresh viewing only confirms its stature as one of the greatest of all musicals, co-directed and co-choreographed by Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly.

"Singin' in the Rain" is considered by many to be the greatest movie musical ever made. But it began rather inauspiciously, according to the writing team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green. "We were under contract with MGM," recalls Comden. "Our producer, Arthur Freed, who had been a very good lyricist, said, 'Kids'--he called us kids--'you are going to write a movie called "Singin' in the Rain" and put all of my songs in it.'

His landings were soft as a cat's, his spins a blur of blue. Three judges gave Johnny Weir a 5.9 for technical mastery and five gave him a perfect 6.0 score for the presentation of his long program Saturday, but Weir was a tougher critic. "I'd give myself a 5.6 or 5.7 on the first mark and 5.8 or 5.9 on the second," he said. "I know I skated well, but it wasn't perfect." Perhaps not, but the 20-year-old's polished performance to "Otonal" clinched his second consecutive U.S.

"Wait until the critics see this movie," groaned Barry Manilow, rolling his eyes toward the ceiling of a West Hollywood restaurant, clutching his head in mock anguish. "They're gonna crucify it." Conditioned by continual critical drubbing for his albums and concerts, the pop singer said he wouldn't be surprised to see critics trash his acting debut in "Copacabana," his first TV movie. It airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on CBS.
