Description
Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly play ball in a big way as 1900s vaudevillians who spend the winter flinging the onstage blarney and the summer flinging the ol' horsehide for baseball's world champs, the Wolves.

Sinatra is second sacker Dennis Ryan and Kelly is shortstop Eddie O'Brien in this Busby Berkeley-directed romp that combines baseball with that other all-American pastime: romance. Esther Williams plays the new team owner and Betty Garrett is a Baseball Annie with eyes for blue-eyed Ryan. Kelly and Stanley Donen's deft musical stagings ranged from a softshoe duet charmer to an exciting "barrel roll" Kelly solo. Their work persuaded producer Arthur Freed to green-light their direction of the same year's On the Town.

      Comments about this product:

      Love this movie. Love the gay 90s background, the costumes, the baseball - everything. Gene Kelly at his best. The only movie of his I liked better was "Anchors Aweigh." Frank Sinatra in one of the last times he was ever a sidekick or secondary character. And Esther Williams - is there anything that woman couldn't do on screen? She can act, she sings and dances, she swims like a perfect fish. In this movie she can even play baseball. A good group of MGM's best character actors too. Thoroughly entertaining, great music, I recommend popping this in your DVD player on a gray, pouring-rain day. You'll forget all about the yucky weather...

            I happen to love musicals and baseball so this was indeed fun. I love Sinatra and Kelly together they make a good team. I believe this was the third movie I saw them in, each one unique; each one made me laugh with such great dancing. If you are at home sit down and get the popcorn, if your traveling a longer distance you don't want to be the one to drive! enjoy this in the back seat, and it does make a great gift, even better, start a collection for a friend who you know loves laughs and musicals....or these actors.They all do a great job.No mistake getting this for yourself !!

                This is such a WONDERFUL movie! I've just now seen it for the very first time & I LOVE it!

                It saddens me to have learned about Gene Kelly & how he's treated people but by from watching this film, you would never know how poorly he & the director treated Esther Williams. Esther Williams did a beautiful job in all of her scenes! They all did! And Williams & Kelly look stunning together! What a shame he couldn't see that.

                I never took to any older Hollywood films until I caught Gene Kelly in Anchors Away. I couldn't believe how incredibly handsome & talented he was! I always heard the name but never had a face or movie to put with it. What a GORGEOUS man!

                Then recently, Esther Williams passed away. The same thing, I never had a face or movie to put with her name so I started to watch her films only to remember seeing some of them on TV as a kid.

                I became so captivated with her beauty & talent! Oh my goodness is she BEAUTIFUL! Then I bought her biography. That's where I learned of her doing this movie with Gene Kelly. And that's where learned how he mistreated & ostracized her because MGM wanted her in the film since the other actresses he wanted were not available.

                Though I'm disappointed in the things I'm learning about Gene Kelly, I do love his work. TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME is my favorite of his, mainly because Esther Williams is in it with him. They really look stunning together, especially the balcony scene!! WOW! Gosh, they just don't make beautiful, elegant, sophisticated actors & actresses like this anymore in today's Hollywood.

                I highly recommend this movie!!
