On the Town

98' - 1949 - Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: English
Director: Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly Composer: Leonard Bernstein, Roger Edens, Betty Comden, Adolph Green With: Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Betty Garrett
New York New York! A wonderful town. The Bronx is up and the Battery's down ... The prototype of the modern musical, where songs and dance propel plots rather than prop them up. On the Town has this electrifying Bernstein­ scored opening as three sailors begin 24 hours' shore leave, each one wanting a slim Manhattan waistline to embrace. On the Town is also great
comedy, especially Sinatra's scenes with Betty Garrett's voracious cabbie. (National Film Theatre, London 1986)
