This is a movie where three entirely different stories are told though dancing. Words are not used and the style of dancing is different for each part. Kelly is a clown in the 'Circus'; a ... See full summary »

Betty Comden and Adolph Green originally conceived this musical as a sequel to their smash, On the Town (1949), having the new film reunite Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin. It was originally intended as a stage musical but that changed when Kelly insisted on filming it. Studio boss Dory Schary did not want to hire Sinatra because the singer had acquired a reputation for being difficult and nixed Munshin because he was no longer popular with audiences. See more »
Early in their reunion, where the guys are sitting together and awkwardly fumbling for something to talk about, one asks the others who they think will win the World Series. The 1955 Series actually ended on 4 October, a week before the events in this film. (The Brooklyn Dodgers beat the New York Yankees four games to three.) It should have been obvious to the filmmakers that the World Series of that era would have ended well before 11 October, no matter who was playing or how many games it went. See more »
What kind of a screwball are you?
To save you the strain of trying to understand me, I'll give you the salient facts: graduate of Barnard, summa cume laude; career girl; I'm fairly pretty - which is a nuisance; I attract a lot of men at first - but, I can always find a way of getting rid of them and then everybodies happy all around. In short, I can always scare them off.

45 years ago I was only 15. I was in love with films, especially cowboys and musketers. Robin Hood with Errol Flyn was the top! And one evening (or it was afternoon?) I was hit by three things: Gene Kelly was dancing on rollerskates! Cyd Charisse has beautiful and very long legs (and she knows how to move them!)!And music was much better than gunfighters and D'Artagnan movies! Lets talk about the story: War is over and our gang drink a lot and start dancing , singing and be drunk as ever.They promises to be friend all life long and to coming back in the same places ten years later. They also put some money in a ceeling lamp for the future drinks. Time goes by.... Somebody was lucky, for others too bad. Our "friends" meeting each other to discover to hate themselves! But...It's always fair weather!They put apart egotism and nevrosis, memories grow in them and they start smile again! Friendship and Music, Songs and Laughings, Smiles and...Cyd...Wonderfool! After 45 years, It's Always Fair Weather is a beautiful film (and I will pay pure gold to see it on DVD!). Bravo Kelly, Dailey, Charisse and bravo Stanley Donen, brilliant choreographer and director not always acclaimed by public or critics.
