Anchors Aweigh is the first film of the Frank Sinatra-Gene Kelly trilogy, tapping into the odd fascination the classic Hollywood musical had with sailors. It wouldn’t be the last time Kelly or Sinatra would play a sailor and what an underrated comedic duo they are.

"Joe Brady (Gene Kelly) and Clarence Doolittle (Frank Sinatra) are two seamen who take a shore leave in Hollywood after being awarded Silver Stars.
