Debbie Reynolds in Conversation

As part of Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance!, the BFI’s celebration of the MGM musical, Singin’ in the Rain star Debbie Reynolds looks back over her remarkable life and career. Don’t miss her wicked aside to the audience members sitting behind her.

After outlining her earliest roles (a supporting role in Three Little Words, delivering the showstopping ‘Aba Daba Honeymoon’ in Two Weeks with Love), she recalls her early insecurities (“I wasn’t sexy, I wasn’t beautiful, I wasn’t cute and I couldn’t dance”) and how she was inspired by the comfort of another Hollywood legend to develop her talent.
