On the Town

Before delivering the musical classic Singin’ in the Rain, Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly directed this memorable romantic song-and-dance comedy that gave birth to the track New York, New York. Frank Sinatra, Jules Munshin and Kelly himself star as three sailors who are granted a 24-hour pass in the Big Apple.

The pep, enthusiasm and apparent fun the makers of On the Town had in putting it together comes through to the audience and gives the picture its best asset.
