The film"s page

Set during the advent of "talkies," Don Lockwood (Kelly) has risen to stardom during Hollywood's silent-movie era—paired with the beautiful, jealous and dumb Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen in her Oscar-nominated performance). And when Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden (Reynolds), Lamont has her fired.

But with the introduction of talking pictures, Lockwood finds his career in jeopardy after audiences laugh when they hear Lamont speak in her shrill voice for the first time until the studio decides to use Selden to dub her voice.
