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

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 ago, 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 producti... 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)

Hokey Heroes

“I mean, I did like Singin’ in the Rain, and that was fun—same director, same genre, same five-year period. And for the record, I haven’t seen “Don’t Worry Darling”. And Frank Sinatra is cool, you know. It’s just, I don’t know. I’m not a big stickler for realism, but it’s just so goofy for sailors to be…. I don’t know. I mean, it was a different time—the Jazz Age, the 40s, sure. It’s just that for me, I feel like if you let sailors loose in New York for 24 hours to take the city by storm and get lucky, it wouldn’t be, I don’t know, cutesy, you know. There’s not needing excessive realism, and then there’s…. Yeah. But like I said, it was a different time. Fulton Sheen and CS Lewis and so on hated the Jazz Age, and they probably thought that Frank Sinatra ” read more
