Take Me Out to the Ball Game (Sinatra Tribute) (DVD)
Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly and Esther Williams find romance, gangsters and lots of song and dance on the baseball diamond in the fast-paced, fun-filled musical romp Take Me Out to the Ball Game.1906. The champion ball club The Wolves' success depends on the powerhouse double play combination of O'Brien to Ryan to Goldberg. Trouble is O'Brien (Kelly--An American in Paris, Brigadoon) and Ryan (Academy Award winner Sinatra--From Here to Eternity, Pal Joey) would rather be pursuing their vaudeville career than playing baseball . . . that is until the team gets a new owner, beautiful K.C. Higgins (Williams--Dangerous When Wet). And when a professional gambler who has bet heavily against The Wolves tries every dirty trick he knows to influence the outcome of the big game, it's the baseball players against the gangsters for a wild, hysterical, musical nine innings.]]>

Thus, this is definitely not the best of the Kelly-Sinatra trilogy, and it has the worst ending ever. Nevertheless, I love musicals so I watch the early scenes of the film for its own sake.
Special Features include: two deleted dance numbers, some theatrical trailers, and film notes.
That being said, in my own personal opinion, this was my least favorite of the three films they did together. Please don't take that statement as an insult though, I just really enjoyed their other sailor-themed films a lot more. Especially that of "Anchors Aweigh," which had wonderful music, memorable dances, and a little more character depth than this film that I'm rating.
If you're new to Kelly-Sinatra films, I would recommend starting with "Anchors Aweigh" or "On The Town" first, but chances are this film will still turn you on to the others because, it too, is a wonderful movie.
