Speaks About Elements Used In The Movie Singin In The Rain And The Use Of Satire

343 words - 2 pages

The most affective element in Singin in the Rain was the use of satire in the script and especially dealing with Mr. Simpson. The use of satire added a comical aspect to the film and it also allowed the viewer to laugh at authority. Mr. Simpson is the head of the film company and yet he doesn't seem very bright and speaks from two sides of him mouth. This is shown particularly well in two scenes in the film. The first scene showing this was when the first talkie is shown during a party. Once the short film introducing the talkie he says it was a terrible idea and then everyone agrees with him which proves how most people immediately agree when a person with more authority speaks. Yet, later in the film he is angry they were not the first film company to produce a talkie and soon all the films the company is making are talkies. He changes his mind and does not accept that his first opinion was wrong with is satire. The other scene that included funny satire dealing with Mr. Simpson was when Ms. Lamont showed in her contract that she had the right in the contract to have control over her advertising. The satire was that Mr. Simpson the head of the company had no clue what was included in the contract and said "I am confused" and the leader should not be confused. The use of satire added another aspect to the movie and lightened the mood and made the movie better.
