Un día en Nueva York es uno de los grandes musicales de la historia del cine. Fue dirigida por Gene Kelly y Stanley Donen, dos personajes capitales en el género musical que posteriormente rodarían la obra maestra Cantando bajo la lluvia.

Los personajes son Gabey (Gene Kelly), Chip (Frank Sinatra) y Ozzie (Jules Munshin) como los 3 marineros que disponen únicamente de 24 horas de... read more

An amazing cast, with equally amazing songs, music and dance numbers (all of which distract from the lack of a complicated story), On the Town is an excellent musical movie.

The story, as is typical of these types of movies, in unbelievable --- three navy men on 24 hour leave in New York, who meet and fall for the women they encounter. Gene Kelly is on a hunt for the woman he see... read more

A classic

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of musicals but since this movie is a classic, I thought I might as well give it a try. As a matter of fact, a couple of weeks, I finally managed to read (most of) a book about movies my wife bought for me and, in this book, they developed some interesting views about musicals. Indeed, according to the writer, back in those days, there was a really rigid production c... read more

Description: Amazon.com essential video New York, New York--it's a helluva town; the Bronx is up and the Battery's down; the people ride in a hole in the ground.... Well, you get the idea. Those lyrics (by Betty Comden and Adolph Green), set to Leonard Bernstein's music, have made On the Town a permanent part of the psychological landscape of New York City. The story (inspired by Jerome Robbins's ballet Fancy Free) is pretty slight: Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Jules Munshin play sailors with 24 hours' leave to take their bite out of the Big Apple. When they meet, and then lose, this month's Miss Turnstiles (Vera-Ellen), they scour the to ... (more)

On the Town

“Three sailors on 24-hour shore leave look for love and adventure in On the Town, one of the most enthusiastic musicals to come out of Arthur Freed’s unit. This was the first musical to film on location, with the “New York, New York” number racing through all of the infamous sights and locations the city had to offer in 1949. If the film has any flaw, it’s that the central romance between Gene Kelly and Vera-Ellen isn’t as fun as the other lusty pairings.   Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Jules Munshin are the three sailors looking for a good time, and Vera-Ellen, Betty Garret, and Ann Miller are very happy to provide one. The stakes are fairly low, but my god is it irresistible. On the Town charms you with its high-energy thrills, and with dance choreography that is both gracef” read more
