!!The Movie



* Cosmo's continued friendship with Don. Don refuses to let stardom get to his head; he treasures his friends. And Cosmo knows that even though he doesn't get the fame that being the best friend of the biggest actor in Hollywood would imply, it's still worthwhile to be with Don.

* [[HeterosexualLifePartners Cosmo's continued friendship with Don.Don]]. Don refuses to let stardom get to his head; he treasures his friends. And Cosmo knows that even though he doesn't get the fame that being the best friend of the biggest actor in Hollywood would imply, it's still worthwhile to be with Don.



* An example which doesn't occur in the movie, but is heartwarming nonetheless: Creator/DebbieReynolds was not a dancer at the time she made ''Singin' in the Rain'', and notorious perfectionist Creator/GeneKelly worked her so hard, she began having breakdowns during rehearsal. Creator/FredAstaire was hanging around the studio and found Reynolds crying under a piano. Hearing what had happened, Astaire let her witness one of ''his'' rehearsal sessions - normally he ''never'' let ''anyone'' watch him rehearse - in order to help her understand that dancing can be ''very'' hard work, even for the best performers, but that hard work is necessary and, in the end, worth it.
* Another meta moment: Creator/GeneKelly was apparently a rather tyrannical director, and neither Creator/DebbieReynolds nor Donald O'Connor enjoyed working with him because of his perfectionism and tendency to yell at people. Reynolds never did another movie with Kelly, but she ''did'' do another one with Donald O'Connor, ''I Love Melvin,'' because he treated her better.
** O'Connor would also deliberately miss steps when Reynolds did so Kelly would yell at him instead.

* Don's smile during Kathy's performance of "All I Do Is Dream Of You." It's clear that he's not mocking her, he's actually enjoying the show and seeing that Kathy does in fact have talent.
