On the Town

On the Town

This 1949 movie musical is one of my favorites. It stars Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Ann Miller, Jules Munshin, and Betty Garrett. Three sailors, Chip (Frank Sinatra), Gabey (Gene Kelly), and Ozzie (Jules Munshin), are on a 24 hour shore leave in New York City. They fall in love with a picture of "Miss Turnstiles" (Vera-Ellen). In searching for her, they meet Claire (Ann Miller), and Hildy (Betty Garrett). The movie is very fun, with a lot of dancing and singing. Ann Miller is one of my favorite 40s actresses, and she shines in this musical, especially in the "Prehistoric Man" singing and dance scene.
