Joseph Gordon-Levitt Sings and Dances on SNL

For his Saturday Night Live monologue, Joseph Gordon-Levitt performed “Make ‘Em Laugh” from the 1952 musical film Singin’ in the Rain.

In the movie the song was performed by the great Donald O’Connor.

The songs composers are listed as Arthur Freed (lyrics) and Nacio Herb Brown (music) but the ditty strongly resembles Cole Porter’s “Be a Clown.” Freed was a producer and responsible for several lavish musicals of the eras.

Singin’ In The Rain is often considered one of Hollywood’s greatest musicals.

Sadly, or expectedly, this was Saturday Night Live’s lone highlight.
