Stormy Weather Ahead

Its Always Fair Weather will go down in history as the film musical which “could have been”. If It’s Always Fair Weather had been made a few years earlier it could have been in the same leagues as Singin’ In the Rain and On the Town but some shortcomings prevent it from being so. The movie was originally conceived as a sequel to On the Town, reuniting Gene Kelly with co-stars Frank Sinatra... read more

It’s Always Fair Weather is a film filled with some of the best, under heralded dance sequences in the MGM canon and a story that is underwhelming. There’s very much a tonal and narrative problem at play here as Fair Weather tries to be a satire of television, an exploration of post-war malaise, and a shiny/happy MGM musical romantic-comedy all in one. That’s a lot of movie to carry and Fair... read more
View all It's Always Fair Weather (1955) reviews
Sparkling with wit and exuberant numbers, IT’S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER centers on three World War II buddies (Gene Kelly, Dan Dailey, and Michael Kidd) who vow to reunite for old time’s sake in ten years. When they do, they find their friendship has fizzled—until a day of tangling with romance, boxing, the ad biz, and a new medium called TV restores their bond. Highlights include a high-spirited romp that uses trash-can lids as dancing shoes, elegant Cyd Charisse’s KO of a routine with broken-nosed pugilists, and Kelly’s joyful, astonishing tap dance on roller skates.

It's Always Fair Weather

“It’s Always Fair Weather is a film filled with some of the best, under heralded dance sequences in the MGM canon and a story that is underwhelming. There’s very much a tonal and narrative problem at play here as Fair Weather tries to be a satire of television, an exploration of post-war malaise, and a shiny/happy MGM musical romantic-comedy all in one. That’s a lot of movie to carry and Fair Weather doesn’t always carry the load evenly.   Even if the story involving three WWII soldiers reuniting ten years afterwards is most interesting when it explores the disillusionment of the GIs, Fair Weather strays too far from this central premise to register as an underrated classic. Dolores Gray’s Madeline Bradville, a wonderfully theatrical parody of TV hostess of the era, takes too l” read more
