Anchors Aweigh

Anchors Aweigh

About

On shore-leave after eight months at sea, sailors Sinatra and Kelly hit Hollywood. Kelly, the sailor with a gal in every port, tries to procure a girl for shy Sinatra, but Grayson (looking a little uncomfortable with her part) has a different idea. This isn't up to the standard of On the Town four years later, but Kelly's classic pairing with cartoon mouse Jerry, and Sinatra's rendition of 'I Fall in Love Too Easily' make this well worth a look.
