Anchors Aweigh screening
Saturday, May 6, 2017 @ 09:30–11:53$20
The Dryden will screen Anchors Aweigh (George Sidney, U.S. 1945, 143 min.) as part of the Nitrate Picture Show.
"Anchors Aweigh mixes music, uniforms and Hollywood cut-ups in such a show as only Hollywood could concoct. Gene Kelly is in there dancing superbly in more than one sequence. Frank Sinatra tags along with his largo vocalizing; Jose Iturbi knocks out some fancy boogie-woogie on the piano and Kathryn Grayson alternates between singing mock operatic arias and being cute. Since Isobel Lenart has written some amusing lines for the continuity and Joe Pasternak has produced the show with Technicolor extravagance, the film is satisfactory summer fare." — Howard Barnes, New York Herald Tribune, July 20, 1945
