Dynamic Duo: Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra

I recently got into a bit of trouble with a joke I made in my review for Anchors Aweighin which I’d cheekily noted that my favorite film genre was “Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra as girl-chasing sailors on leave.” Of course, this is a “genre” that spans exactly two films–Anchors Aweigh and On the Town–so I felt bad when someone eagerly commented seeking a watch-list of other films they thought they had overlooked.

Give a Girl a Break (1953)

Give a Girl a Break is another of the films I’ve been catching up on from TCM that isn’t available on Netflix,  but I’m slowly working through them–hopefully before the next big DVR-buster of a schedule pops up. Anyway, it’s a great example of the behind-the-scenes musical subgenre, with a familiar but cheerfully welcome set up.
