To Mark The Wettest Day Of The Year... Our Top Ten Rain Scenes From Films (PHOTOS)

Channel Four Films
Which is your favourite rain scene of all time?

To thank April for its annual showers and celebrate this, the wettest day of the year that will bring us a whole month’s worth of rain, we thought it only fitting to bring you the top ten rain scenes in film.

Here’s a taste of what’s to come to whet – or wet – your appetite. We’ve got Gene Kelly swinging round lampposts declaring the obvious; the slightly creepy upside-down kiss between Kirsten Dunst and a man who shoots webs out of his hands; and the torrential downpour at the end of Shawshank Redemption’s dramatic escape scene that gave Tim Robbins a much-needed, post-sewer, wash.

Are we missing your favourite? Let us know in the Comments below...

But for now (with a big thanks to LOVEFILM for compiling the most-popular poll), here's, arguably, the top ten. So put the kettle on, slip on the old slipper socks, stay out of the wet and take at look...
