Here's one ball game you can't afford to miss. Under the direction of Busby Berkeley, Gene Kelly joins forces with Frank Sinatra as a talented double-play combination who, when they aren't throwing out base runners for team owner Esther Williams, double as vaudeville's best musical act. With Kelly tap dancing and Ol' Blue Eyes balladeering, this grand-slam flick covers every base, including Kelly’s tribute to his Irish heritage in The Hat My Father Wore on St. Patrick's Day routine.
