On the Town


Dir. Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen (1949) Adapting this 1944 Broadway musical, about three sailors on 24-hour leave in New York, co-director and co-star Kelly insisted on filming several scenes on location in Gotham—resulting in one of the most ebullient musicals about the city ever made.
