Busby Berkeley

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

93' - 1949 - Comedy, Romance, Sport, Music/Musical - Dialogue: English
Director: Busby Berkeley Composer: Roger Edens, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Adolphe Deutsch, Conrad Salinger With: Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Esther Williams
More like a Donen/Kelly musical than 2, Busby Berkeley, which is hardly surprising since they staged and filmed the numbers, while Berkeley left after doing the dialogue scenes. With Kelly, Sinatra and Musnhin learning up tor the brilliant vaudeville-baseball routine of a number like 'O'Brien to Ryan to
Goldberg', it often looks like a run-in for On the Town. Less 'integrated' perhaps, but enormously enjoyable.
(Time Out, 1990)
