Executive Suite is a 1954 MGM drama film depicting the internal struggle for control of a furniture manufacturing company after the unexpected death of the company's CEO. The film stars William Holden, Barbara Stanwyck, Fredric March, and Walter Pidgeon. It was directed by Robert Wise and produced by John Houseman from a screenplay by Ernest Lehman based on the novel of the same name by Cameron Hawley. This was Lehman's first produced screenplay. He would go on to write Sabrina, North By Northwest, West Side Story, and other significant films. Over his career he would be nominated for the Academy Award six times. While the film is one of few in Hollywood history without a musical score, the song "Singin' in the Rain" is sung by young Mike Walling while he is off-camera taking a shower. The song appears in many MGM films during the period when its lyricist Arthur Freed was a producer at the studio.
