Hit the lights! An all-star cast and plenty of big numbers make this classic 1955 musical a blast. Russ Tamblyn, Vic Damone, and Tony Martin are three wacky sailors on leave. Debbie Reynolds, Jane Powell, and the immortal Ann Miller are three girls ready for romance. High jinks ensue. Miller's character, Ginger, is a nightclub singer, allowing for maximum dance numbers and costume changes. Yes, it's a big, silly MGM musical with plenty of songs, jokes, and splashy colors, and it's quite a bit of fun. Fred Astaire choreographer Hermes Pan provided the at-times hilariously elaborate dance numbers, and "Hallelujah," the big finale, is presented in all its original widescreen glory so you won't miss a cannon. It's enough to make you want to enlist. --Ali Davis From the Back CoverForty-eight hours shore leave isn't much time for three sailors (Tony Martin, Vic Damone, Russ Tamblyn) who've gone from patrolling straits to prowling for curves (Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, Ann Miller) in San Francisco. But it's plenty of time for great songs, exuberant dancing-and lots of goofy trouble when a brawl with a meddling playboy sets the Shore Patrol (headed by comic Alan King) on the swabbies' trail.Hit the Deck's jubilant legs stretch way back. It's based on the 1927 Broadway smash that's the granddaddy of all sailors-on-leave musicals. Another legend, choreographer Hermes Pan, provides the musical staging that includes a gag-filled funhouse routine, plus a bouncy shipside finale set to Vincent Youman's "Hallelujah" (shown here in letter-box format so you can enjoy all of that sequence's razzle-dazzle). If On the Town and Anchors Aweigh hoisted your spirits, you'll want to Hit the Deck when the Navy once again takes a city by storm and hearts by song!
