Why, I make more money than Calvin Coolidge… put together!

Just a little shout-out to one of my all-time favorite movies, the immortal Singin’ In The Rain – a recent repeat viewing reminded me of the line referring to Calvin Coolidge, spoken (nay, shrieked!) by the splendid Jean Hagen in her Lina (“what’s wrong with the way I talk?”) Lamont role. Besides having a fantastic cast and magical music, the film also captures nicely the exuberance of the 1920s.
