On the Town

On the Town

Directed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen • 1949 • United States
Starring Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Betty Garrett

“New York, New York, it’s a wonderful town!” For this exuberant adaptation of Leonard Bernstein’s Broadway hit, directors Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen busted out of the soundstage and hit the streets of the Big Apple. Making unprecedented use of location shooting—from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park to the top of Rockefeller Center—ON THE TOWN bursts with a joyous, freewheeling energy as three sailors (Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Jules Munshin) find romance and adventure over the course of a whirlwind twenty-four-hour shore leave.
