USA 1949
Dirs Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen
With Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Ann Miller, Betty Garrett
Certificate U

Gloriously shot on location in New York, this story of three sailors who find romance while on 24-hour shore leave is a joy from start to finish. On the Town features music by maestro Leonard Bernstein and a deliciously droll screenplay (and lyrics) by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Kelly and Sinatra radiate charm but Betty Garrett, as the wise-cracking taxi driver, practically steals the film.
