RIP: Stanley Donen
I just learned that Singin’ in the Rain and On the Town director Stanley Donen1 has died aged 942. It’s a ripe old age but sad news nonetheless, this marks the passing of another figure from the classic age of Hollywood.
I always felt a bit of a personal connection to his work - we showed Singin’ in the Rain at our wedding3 and it was a huge hit in the cinema even 64 years after its release.
Thanks for the memories Stanley, rest in peace.
