4.0 out of 5 stars On the Town - the movie 22 Dec 2009
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
On the Town - the movie

This is a story of three sailors (Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munchin) and their escapades while on shore leave for 24 hours in New York - a much worked Hollywood theme! It was originally a Broadway hit with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, itself a reworking of a Jerome Robbins ballet called Fancy Free. Gene Kelly directed and choreographed the film with Stanley Donen. Some of the Bernstein tunes were dropped in the film to be replaced by others composed by Roger Edens, Conrad Salinger and Lennie Hayton. But the rousing opening number, `New York, New York, It's a wonderful town' was retained as were some of the ballet sequences. In fact, the whole film was very balletic, which reflects its origins. The girls after whom the sailors chased were Vera-Ellen (`Miss Turnstiles'), Ann Miller (an anthropologist, would you believe), and Betty Garrett (as a lady cab driver). Though the storyline is somewhat overworked, the film as a whole is thoroughly entertaining for most of its 98 minutes. It was released in 1949 and is in Technicolor.

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make them like this any more! 11 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Forget 'Singing in the Rain' for one moment and see Kelly and Sinatra at their freshest. Location filming for a musical for the first time blends fiction with reality and songs that will make you wonder why they don't make films like this any more. A Perfect cast in a perfect musical. Don't miss it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie Poor Transfer 6 Feb 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great Hollywood classic musical with superb songs and dancing. Vera Ellen is at her best in this movie.

However, the whole experience is marred by a transfer that should have been better.

When compared to the excerpt from 'On The Town' that appears in the DVD of 'That's Entertainment' you can see that this is a very mediocre transfer and Warner Brothers clearly haven't tried too hard on this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very POOR! 29 Jun 2011
By M
Appalling quality even if you try to ignore the foreign language text appearing in every frame. I'll have to try and find another version of this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gift so Just OK for me 7 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie was actually a gift for someone so was ok for me as It was not actually for me. However, I have seen the film and it is one of the classic films that we no longer see on TV or around these days, hence the import version. Still a good film to while away a wet afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the very best 7 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A complete musical triumph. The undoubted highlight for me is the reunion of top of the Empire State and the climax of New York, New York. The bursting out of the elevator at ground level is one of the greatest climaxes of any musical I know.
