Here is the second song in the book of Dr Jazz: Singin’ in the rain. The date on the music sheet says 1927 and it appeared to be taken from the hollywood review (revue). So while at first I thought it was the dancing scene with Gene Kelly that was the original, it turns out that this song is from earlier date (see also this wiki). An interesting surprise !
