Two Americans on a hunting trip in Scotland become lost. They encounter a small village, not on the map, called Brigadoon, in which people harbor a mysterious secret, and behave as if they were still living two hundred years in the past.
Three sailors - Gabey, Chip and Ozzie - let loose on a 24-hour pass in New York and the Big Apple will never be the same! Gabey falls head over heels for "Miss Turnstiles of the Month" (he thinks she's a high society deb when she's really a 'cooch dancer at Coney Island); innocent Chip gets highjacked (literally) by a lady cab driver; and Ozzie becomes the object of interest of a gorgeous anthropologist who thinks he's the perfect example of a "prehistoric man". Wonderful music and terrific shots of New York at its best. Written by
Near the end of "Prehistoric Man" when the dancing moves in front of the dinosaur, Claire's mark can be seen on the floor. See more »
Gabey, Chip, Ozzie:
New York, New York, a wonderful town / The Bronx is up and the Battery down / The people ride in a hole in the ground / New York, New York, it's a wonderful town!

Boy, is this a great film! Three sailors on a 24-hour shore leave, their first time visiting New York City, set of to find some pretty girls and have a good time. They find some girls, only not the ones they'd imagined, and it all turns into quite an experience, something our navy boys weren't really prepared for.
Arthur Freed, producer and head of "the Freed Unit" at MGM, hit the jackpot in trusting directors Kelly and Donen to film on site in New York, in the days when most movies were totally shot in studios. "On the Town" had been a big hit on Broadway, and the movie turned out to be a great success. This was the highlight of movie musicals.
There's a great cast, and the best thing about this movie is that all six main characters are in focus and get a chance to show themselves off. Some pretty smart songs, some original and some written for the film, and a witty dialogue.
If ya like sailors, New York, Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra, you absolutely must see "On the Town".
