Three sailors on 24-hour leave in New York City. Their smiles and white unforms sparkle and their energy bursts out, as they attack the beautiful city with song, dance, and humor, each looking for just the perfect female companion to share it with.
An irresistible adventure when the three are played by none other than Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and their appealing companion Jules Munshin.
It’s a romp and a romance, as the sailors somehow meet up with just the right girls—who can all sing and dance up a storm: Ann Miller, Vera-Ellen, and Betty Garrett.
The glittering cast is backed up by the most dazzling creators imaginable. The same team of writers, Adolph Green and Betty Comden, and director Stanley Donen would go on three years later to create the smash hit, “Singin’ in the Rain.” The music was written by Leonard Bernstein. And “On the Town” also lets the city of New York star, being one of the first musicals filmed on location.
You won’t forget this dazzling musical, as you’re humming “New York, New York…it’s a wonderful town”
