On the Town

 

 

Dir: Stanley Donan and Gene Kelly, USA, 98mins (1949)
Starring: Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Ann Miller


The less known of the ‘big three’ of Gene Kelly films, On the Town is a perky and fun musical about three sailors spending 24 hours in the Big Apple. Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin dance and sing their way through New York City, chasing the girls, seeing the sights and getting into trouble as the clock ticks away. Fancy footwork and cheeky songs galore, On the Town is the one that takes itself the least seriously.
