Don Lockwood Killed in Freak Auto Accident

Posted over at Jim Lane’s Cinedrome, these “Items from Cosmo Brown’s Scrapbook” are, I believe, the most bizarre Singin’ in the Rain-related material I’ve ever come across.

The (fake) letters and memos from Kathy Selden, Phoebe Dinsmore (“round tones!”), Dora Bailey, and R.F. Simpson discuss, among other events, the accidental death of Don Lockwood (struck by a taxi cab!), the nixing of The Dueling Cavalier, and Selden’s apparent breach of contract with Monumental Pictures. Clicking on the headline below will take you to the rest of Cosmo’s “scrapbook.”


News, videos, and commentary devoted to the dancer, choreographer, director extraordinaire.
