Hit the Deck [Blu-ray] [1955] [US Import] HALLELUJAH, WHAT A SHOW!

Anchors Aweigh, On the Town and Hit the Deck. Here Hollywood has always known what to do with sailors on leave: Give 'em some pretty girls, some great songs and watch the fans line up to enlist!

Hit the Deck hits all the right notes as three sailors [Tony Martin, Vic Damone and Russ Tamblyn] and three cuties [Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds and Ann Miller] flirt, squabble, run afoul of shore patrol and of course, fall in love to a hit parade of Vincent Youmans' tunes. Highlights include Ann Miller's polishing the floor as "The Lady from the Bayou," Tony Martin's romantic mastery of "More Than You Know" and the stage-filling rouser "Hallelujah." Music, romance, fun: and please don't miss the boat!

Andrew's Blu-ray review - HIT THE DECK [1955] is one of a fairly small number of MGM musicals which I'd never caught up with over the years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great numbers, amusing picture, lousy video quality 5 Oct 1999
By JOHN GAYFORD - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a pleasant musical of its period with excellently staged numbers, good songs and a talented cast. I've been looking forward to seeing it ever since I glimpsed that fabulous clip from it in "That's Entertainment" back in the 80s in which the cast did "Halleluja" (the finale). And who could fail to enjoy a movie with Ann Miller and Tony Martin in it? But, I have to say that one's enjoyment of it is badly impaired by the terrible quality of the video. It is appallingly framed from the Cinemascope original, cutting out characters and ruining the dance design - someone forgot to turn up the color, so that it's so pale it looks almost like black and white - and worst of all (for a musical in particular), it was obviously recorded on a dirty magnetic sound head, making the soundtrack hopelessly muffled and grating, like an old worn-out phonograph record. Subtle sounds are totally lost and only the loudest noises break through the fuzz. This is quite unacceptable and deeply disappointing to a collector. Whoever produces MGM home videos should be ashamed of doing such a disservice to one of the greatest archives in Cinema history (not to mention the customers). It seems as if the videos were copied without any monitor-control and packaged without being checked. Disgraceful. And it's not the only one! I'm still waiting for a decent copy of "An Ameriucan in Paris".

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Shore-Leave Musical 16 Mar 2000
By Byron - Published on
You must not confuse this film with ON THE TOWN or ANCHORS AWEIGH.This film is based on the 1920's Broadway show and was in fact the first ever Sailors-on-leave musical. The dancing is phenomenal with Ann Miller kicking up a storm as the nasal-voiced Ginger,and the rest of the steller cast including such MGM Musical regulars Debbie Reynolds,Jane Powell,Russ Tamblyn,Vic Damone and Tony Martin.The wonderful Kay Arnem also puts in a great performance. It was produced by Joe Pasternak,the producer of most all films with Jane Powell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit The Deck 15 Aug 2001
By Sandra Thomas - Published on
Hit The Deck, is my favorite musical, with Jane Powell. The music is fantastic, and she was my favorite singer and actress in musicals. The movie is about sailors & girls and a musical production. All the actors are great, and the singing and dancing wonderful. I would reccomend this for everyone who likes musicals. It is well worth viewing. I hadn't seen this movie since it came out in 1955, as it never was on TV, that I could see. Thanks, Amazon, for making it available. It is a spectacular film.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1950's Fun in Uniform 15 Mar 2004
By George S - Published on
It's big, it's silly, and it's a fun 1950's musical with lots of great stars. This movie won't solve the mysteries of the universe, but it will entertain with lots of great dances and songs. Ann Miller, Jane Powell, and Debbie Reynolds are at their best. Jane in the Penguin number, and Ann in the "Thinking of You" number are standouts. Some VHS copies may have a sound problem. They should bring this out on DVD

4.0 out of 5 stars Tuneful 22 May 2008
By J. Grant Silver - Published on
The DVD release of 'Hit the Deck' is to be welcomed. Yes, the film was made near to the end of the 'great musicals from MGM' period and, perhaps, it does not rate as highly as some of this studio's earlier musical offerings. But, it does have one thing going for it - the music of Vincent Youmans. Even his peers acknowledged that Youmans wrote some of the most tuneful music one could hope for, as evidenced by the ever-lasting popularity of some of his greatest numbers, like 'Tea for Two', in which the verse is, perhaps, even more appealing than the refrain! So, play the 'Hit the Deck' DVD not so much for the visuals but rather for the words and music abetted by the marvellous arrangements/orchestrations of William Beittel and Robert van Epps, carrying on in the tradition for MGM musicals set by the great Conrad Salinger.
