See-worthy sailors Kelly and Sinatra in a singing, dancing, romancing classic.

Given free rein 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 Hate 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).
