Sinatra: 100th Anniversary Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Anchors Aweigh Given free rein in choreographing Anchors Aweigh, Gene Kelly was eager to do the unexpected. But what? How about doing a dance witha 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 Hate to Leave and other highlights helped Anchors Aweigh... weigh in with a 1945 Academy Award for Best Scoring of a musical Picture, plus four more Oscar nominations, inlcuding Best Picture and Actor (Kelly). On the Town New York, New York, it's a wonderful town - especially when sailors Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin have a 24-hour shore leave to see the sights...and when those sights include Ann Miller, Betty Garrett and Vera-Ellen. Robin and the 7 Hoods Robin and the 7 Hoods mirthfully gives the Robin Hood legend a Depression-era, mobtown Chicago setting. There, North Side boss Robbo (Frank Sinatra) hopes to get a leg up in his power struggle with rival racketeer Guy Gisborne (Peter Falk). Robbo sets himself up as a latter-day Robin Hood with philanthropic fronts enabling him to scam the rich, take his cut out and then give to the poor. [show more]

Triple bill of classic musicals starring Frank Sinatra. In 'Anchors Aweigh' (1945) Sinatra and Gene Kelly star as two sailors looking for female companionship while on a four-day pass in Los Angeles. They meet a Hollywood extra (Kathryn Grayson) and try to help her realise her dream of being a star. The film features a famous sequence where Kelly dances with Jerry, the cartoon mouse of 'Tom and Jerry' fame. In 'On the Town' (1949) three sailors (Sinatra, Kelly and Jules Munshin) hit New York City for a 24-hour shore leave. The first order of business is to find some women to spend it with and the boys hook up with Ivy (Vera-Ellen), an aspiring dancer, Hildy (Betty Garrett), a lady cab driver, and Claire (Ann Miller), a paleontology student, causing mayhem across Manhattan. In 'Robin and the Seven Hoods' (1964) an all-star cast revamp the Robin Hood legend, bringing it to Chicago during the Prohibition era where two gangs are competing for territory. Starring alongside Sinatra are Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Bing Crosby and Peter Falk.

Please note this is a region B Blu-ray and will require a region B or region free Blu-ray player in order to play. Anchors Aweigh Newly remastered -- Gene 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 performance of “I Fall in Love Too Easily,” the exuberant “We Hate to Leave” with Kelly, and other highlights helped Anchors Aweigh weigh in with an Academy Award for Best Music (Scoring of a Musical Picture), plus four more Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Kelly. On the Town Newly remastered -- New York, New York, it’s a wonderful town – especially when sailors Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin have a 24-hour shore leave to see the sights…and when those sights include Ann Miller, Betty Garrett and Vera-Ellen. And when brilliant location and studio production numbers are blended, it could be – as here – ebullient, up-and-at-’em perfection. The Bronx is up and the Battery’s down, but no one can be down after going On the Town. Robin and the Seven Hoods Newly remastered -- Robin and the 7 Hoods mirthfully gives the Robin Hood legend a Depression-era, mob town Chicago setting. There, North Side boss Robbo (Frank Sinatra) hopes to get a leg up in his power struggle with rival racketeer Guy Gisborne (Peter Falk). Robbo sets himself up as a latter-day Robin Hood with philanthropic fronts, enabling him to scam the rich, take his cut and then give to the poor.
