On the Town 1949

From Amazon: 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.

On the Town Movie Review by kim (8/12/2006)

Yea, it's an old one, 1949 to be exact, but it's a good one. With Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra starring, On the Town is a story about 3 sailors who get a 24 hour leave from the navy in the wonderful town of New York City. While boarding a subway, Gaby (Gene Kelly) briefly meets and loses the wonderful "Miss Turnstiles"...
