Given free reign in choreographing Anchors Aweigh, Gene Kelly was eager to do the unexpected. But what? "How about doing a dance with a cartoon?" collaborator and friend Stanley Donen asked.

How about it indeed. Kelly's live-action fancy footwork with animated Jerry (of Tom and Jerry) remains a milestone of movie fantasy. Frank Sinatra and Kathryn Grayson also headline this wartime tale of two sailors on leave in Hollywood. Sinatra's "I Fall in Love Too Easily", the exuberant Kelly/Sinatra "We Have to Leave" and other highlights helped Anchors Aweigh weigh in with an Academy Award for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture, plus four more Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Actor (Kelly).
