For Me and My Gal


Dir. Busby Berkeley (1942) Wearing an enlistee’s uniform for the first of many times, Gene Kelly, making his screen debut, plays a highly self-regarding vaudeville hoofer who, after a failed draft-dodging attempt, becomes a war hero in battle. In this musical, Kelly established an important alliance—and easy onscreen chemistry—with his tremulous female lead, Judy Garland.
