Format: DVD
"Anchor's Aweigh" is a fun little film. It is a musical in the old MGM tradition, with just enough plot to stitch together some good song and dance. Very happy and light hearted, with some memorable tunes. Gene Kelly is his usual brand of great, and it's fun to see Frank Sinatra as a shy, skinny little kid who has no luck with "dames." Certainly not the Frank of his later years.
One of the sweetest moments is Frank singing "Brahm's Lullaby." It is very intimate and nice, coming off better than some of his "star moments." The big symphony numbers, lead by José Iturbi, are well done. "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2" is outstanding. Gene Kelly dances his way around that Mexican Hat Dance, and, of course, does his famous shuffle with Jerry the Mouse.
The DVD is actually well packed and worth the purchase. There is a little "Making of..." segment regarding the Jerry the Mouse sequence. This is an excerpt from Patrick Stewart's "When the Lion Roared" MGM documentary. There are movie trailers for "On The Town" and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" in addition to the feature attraction.
Altogether a very nice package for a fun film.

So what if it's a little long? If you love Gene Kelly as much as I do, the time passes too quickly. Gene and Frank work well together and they make an adorable pair of saliors trying to get the girls. So cute in their younger years... excuse me while I swoon.

An incredible film, as is usually the case with Gene Kelly's work. Notable numbers by Frank include "I Fall In Love Too Easily" and his three numbers with Gene: "We Hate To Leave", "I begged Her" and "If You Knew Suzie". However, the inclusion of the annoying Kathryn Grayson does lend for some loss in enjoyment. Her frightfully overly-operatic voice can be immensely spine-chilling and her forced acting leaves much to be desired.
The highlight of Anchors Aweigh would have to be Gene Kelly! Swoon...*thud*. Gorgeous as ever, one cannot help but fall in love with the way Gene converses with Lola on the phone! The famous boxer shorts scene has Gene prancing about for a good minute or two in his boxers, and that is enough to send any female fan of Gene up the ceiling into Gene-heaven! His "the worry song" with animation Jerry the mouse is as thrilling and charming as a number can possibly get. Also, his dance solos which include the "Mexican hat dance" and also the fantasy romance dance, are simply marvellous. A must for any musical fan, and essential for anyone who dares to call herself or himself a Gene Kelly affecionado!

This is one of my favorite MGM musicals! I wouldn't give it 5 stars because that's reserved for the top-notch (such as On the Town)... however, Anchors Aweigh features Kelly and Sinatra in what you might call rehearsal for it.

Kathryn Grayson is also charming here. The music is good (perhaps not so integrated with the plot), the story is very funny and captivating... and Kelly and Sinatra are a joy (aren't they always?)

Really, how COULD you go wrong? Nobody diss this movie. It's damned enjoyable.

Format: DVD
Anchors Aweigh was one of MGM's biggest musicals of the forties, and saw the first of many successful teamings of Sinatra and Kelly. This first issue on DVD comes with Warner Bros packaging and barely a hint that it is an MGM film. WB are seemingly intent on burying the MGM legend as they now re-issue the MGM golden classics in packaging that implies they are Warner films. It is sad to see the MGM legend disappear as Turner (who bought the MGM library) is now owned by WB. Whilst the DVD copy is cleaner and clearer, be warned it is in Mono, as indicated on the box in miniscule print. All release information indicates it is in digital 2.0 surround. Some of the music tracks have been released on CD by Rhino in clear stereo but these mixes have not been used for this issue, disappointingly.

When two sailors, Joe Brady (Gene Kelly) and Clarence Doolittle (Frank Sinatra), get 4 days of leave, Joe decides to woo his girl Lola while Clarence decides to tag along to learn some tips. Instead they are waylaid by a young boy named Donald Martin (Dean Stockwell) who tries to leave home to join the Navy. So Joe and Clarence take him home to meet Donald's gorgeous aunt, Susan Abbott (Kathryn Grayson). But as the two sailors become closer to Susan and Donald, they try to help Susan get a meeting with Jose Iturbi (Himself!). Instead they get trouble as they lie to Susan so Clarence can go out with her. But can Joe keep out his own feelings for Susan from surfacing as he finds himself falling in love with her?
"Anchors Aweigh" is the classic MGM musical starring the two greats together, Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra. Gene Kelly will dance his way into your heart as Frank Sinatra sings into your heart with great dance and song numbers. Kathryn Grayson will also charm you with her amazing soprano voice. And of course Jose Iturbi will astonish you with his piano skills.
Some of my favorite musical numbers are: 1) Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra performing to their fellow mates on board. Very funny! 2) Kelly dancing with Jerry the Mouse. Pretty good mixing real-life and animation. 3) Kelly as the dashing matador. His tap dancing masterpiece for "Anchors Aweigh". 4) Kelly and Sinatra singing "If You Knew Suzie". You'll laugh, laugh, laugh! 5) Kathryn Grayson's audition song. Her voice is amazing! 6) Jose Iturbi playing the piano with all the other pianists of all ages.
The reason for my 4 stars is because though "Anchors Aweigh" is fun and a great musical, in my opinion it's not my absolute favorite since I have many other favorites.
