      Another great musical that I truly love to watch is On the Town. It’s very upbeat and all about love. It’s highly entertaining, with songs that make you want to sing along with them.

      The story of On the Town is pretty basic. It’s three sailors on shore leave for 24 hours. Naturally, all three meet girls, and that’s the story.

      Okay, there’s a little more to it, but not much. It’s just about how they all get together.

      The only part of On the Town I don’t really like is the prolonged dance number with Gene Kelly. The man can dance, but that production number just went on and on and on. It reminds me of the Energizer Bunny, only not nearly as ...

      • fun.

        I love Frank Sinatra with Betty Garrett. They sing a duet together about places to sight-see in New York that is just hysterical. Of course, some of the places like the Hippodrone are completely foreign to me. After all, this is a 1949 release from MGM, and that’s quite a bit before my birth even. I do love that number, though.


        opening production number, reprised at the end, is marvelous. Sinatra, Kelly, and Jules Munshin do a fantastic job with New York, New York, as they do with most of the other numbers in the movie as well.

        Vera-Ellen is good as Kelly’s amour, Miss Turnstiles, while Munshin is teamed up with tapper, Ann Miller. All of the pairings work.

        You gotta see On the Town.
