Wonderful MGM Technicolor musical, with a slightly sad tinge
Three Army buddies go their separate ways after they return home, but vow to meet at their local hangout in ten years to prove that they're still the best of buds. Doesn't turn out that way. They aren't the same people, they don't like each other much anymore, and they don't even really like themselves much. But the skeleton of the story sounds charming, and a TV exec (Cyd Charisse) plans to get them all on television in a surprise ambush. Gene Kelly steals the movie, mostly because he pretty much literally did so. Apparently he was a total diva during the production and post-production, cutting numbers and making sure he got all the best moments. His two Army buddies are far less interesting. But the film still works pretty damn well. All the musical numbers are fantastic, especially Kelly's roller skate number and Charisse's dance with the boxers (love the blue duds). Dolores Gray has a juicy supporting role as an arrogant TV hostess. Her musical number may be the best part of the film. All in all, a gem.
