Aw, that's sad.
He left us "Singin' in the Rain," though.  That movie is so good I can hardly believe it. Like a perfect dream.

For me one of the great song and dance directors but he also flexed different but surprisingly strong creative muscles in later movies like the wonderful Cary Grant thriller CHARADE and the Faustian Moore Cook comedy BEDAZZLED.

And let's not forget the bittersweet Audrey Hepburn/Albert Finney film TWO FOR THE ROAD.
