Delightful, athletic stuff with some unusual -- but wonderful -- location shooting. New York never looked better.

Its aww-shucks charm becomes hard to resist as the three sailors dart around Manhattan, looking for culture, sights, and, of course, 24-hour love.

The pep, enthusiasm and apparent fun the makers of On the Town had in putting it together comes through to the audience and gives the picture its best asset.

With Donen and Kelly at the musical helm, it's no surprise that the song-and-dance numbers are top notch.

It's romp, it's a romance, it's a songfest, it's everything that has now become rather passe in a musical comedy.

On the Town is exhilarating, brash spectacle, all rip-snorting, wisecracking attack, and maybe just a teensy bit unlikeable.
