1080p HD "Make 'Em Laugh" ~ Singin' in the Rain (1952)

From a recently surfaced 1080p High-Definition digital transfer of Singin' in the Rain (1952). Let's hope Warner decides to release a restored version of this transfer on Blu-Ray (& DVD) for the film's upcoming 60th anniversary! "Make 'Em Laugh" (1948) Note: The melody of Cole Porter's "Be a Clown" (1948), first heard in Kelly's film, The Pirate, was "borrowed"/sampled without permission for this song. ~~~~~ Music by Nacio Herb Brown Lyrics by Arthur Freed Sung and Danced by Donald O'Connor ~~~~~~~~~~Lyrics~~~~~~~~~~ Though the world is so full of a number things, I know we should all be as happy as But are we? No, definitely no, positively no. Decidedly no. Mm mm. Short people have long faces and Long people have short faces. Big people have little humor And little people have no humor at all! And in the words of that immortal buddy Samuel J. Snodgrass, as he was about to be lead To the guillotine: Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Don't you know everyone wants to laugh? (Ha ha!) My dad said "Be an actor, my son But be a comical one They'll be standing in lines For those old honky tonk monkeyshines" Now you could study Shakespeare and be quite elite And you can charm the critics and have nothin' to eat Just slip on a banana peel The world's at your feet Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Make 'em... Make 'em laugh Don't you know everyone wants to laugh My grandpa said go out and tell 'em a joke But give it plenty of hoke Make 'em roar Make 'em scream Take a fall But a wall Split a seam You start off by pretending You're a dancer with grace You wiggle 'till they're Giggling all over the place And then you get a great big custard pie in the face Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Don't you know... all the...wants..? My dad... They'll be standing in lines For those old honky tonk monkeyshines Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Don't you know everyone wants to laugh? Ah ha ha ha ha ha há Ah ha ha ha ha ha Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Make 'em laugh, ah ah! Make 'em laugh, ah ah! Make 'em laugh, ah ah! Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh Make 'em laugh!
