On the Town


MGM’s On the Town (1949) tells the adventures of three sailors—Gabey (played by Gene Kelly), Chip (Frank Sinatra), and Ozzie (Jules Munshin)—during a hectic 24-hour shore leave in New York City. Over the course of the day, they meet and romance a dancer (Vera-Ellen), a cab driver (Betty Garrett), and an anthropologist (Ann Miller).

Collaborating directors Kelly and Stanley Donen insisted on filming much of the movie on location, a first for a major musical.

On the Town is screening in 35mm with The Caine Mutiny as part of our Tale of Two Studios double feature series.
