Disappointingly flat musical; if you're after a Kelly/Sinatra pairing, you'll do better with Anchors Aweigh (and even that is no masterpiece).
| Original Score: 2/5

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

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.

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

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.

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

A fine, freewheeling musical.
