(1949) Directed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen. Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Ann Miller, Betty Garrett. (98 min.)

A film musical masterpiece fuses (some of) Leonard Bernstein’s score with a crackling Comden and Green script, Gene Kelly’s inspired hoofing, Frank Sinatra’s swoony voice, NYC location shots, and Betty Garrett’s lady cab driver for a giddy 24-hour romp. “On the Town will always find a place in cinema history for being the first purely dance-oriented musical” (Clive Hirschhorn).
