Musical Movie Review: On the Town
This is a Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly musical in which they portray two of three sailors, who have a day's shore leave and the want to meet girls. Gabey (Kelly) falls for a woman declared princess of New York, and goes to all kind of efforts to meet her. While he does that, the other guys meet girls as well. Can you establish a relationship in just one night, you bet you can. All three guys have girls in tow as the return to the ship. This movie is fun, but not earth shattering. The starring actresses are Vera Ellen, Alice Pearce, Betty Garrett and Ann Miller. Music was written by Leonard Bernstein. Songs of not include "New York, New York" and "Lonely Town."
