HIT THE DECK  [Blu-ray] [US Import] Hallelujah, What A Show!
‘Anchors Aweigh,’ ‘On the Town’ and ‘Hit the Deck.’ Here with these Hollywood Musicasl 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!

What a wonderful film... This is pure joy and entertainment. The actors are great, the songs really nice... And the choregraphy by Hermès Pan just amazing. What a show !!! As for the blu-ray edition, much work has been done on the film and the quality of the restauration is very impressive.
