Traditional Classic Has Great Entertainment Even with a Familiar Plot

  • Apr 11, 2011

Anchors Aweigh isn't a splendid as An American in Paris or Singing in the Rain, but it does have many terrific moments.  As two Navy men on leave, Joe Brady (Kelly) and Clarence Doolittle (Sinatra) have seventy-two hours to paint the town red with some female company.  While Doolittle is a shrinking violet around women, Brady gets woven in a web that pre-dates a Doris Day plot.  Yet, with the song and dance numbers, the splendor of entertainment is terrific enough for most moments of its two hours and twenty minutes to be sustaining.  Although it has some of the familiar boy-meets-girl on the way to their dreams story, it also features the first animated and real-life fusion (a dance sequence with Gene Kelly and Jerry Mouse well before ...Roger Rabbit or Space Jam). Rewarding.
