All Ashore is wonderful
1 August 2005 | by (Basildon, England) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid in bombed out London in the '50's I went to the local picture house to get away from the wreckage of not only the bomb-sites, but also my rowing drunken parents. This movie got me away - double. Loved the three guys, especially a scene in a bar where one of the sailors dances with a girl. It was magic. Also Micky Rooney sitting on a swing and singing a song. He was lonely and feeling a mug. That's just the way I felt at that time. Not a mug, I was 12 and no kid is a mug. You got to be 21 - at least. But I was loney and I associated with these 3 guys. Since, I have danced and known beautiful girls. I would like to find this film again. Yet it has never been played on TV. Perhaps it is lost, crumbled in some archive and never to be returned to our life again. Pity. Great little musical.
