    Watch it. And trust me, you'll fall in love very very easily with Frank Sinatra.
  • "Aweigh" means that that action has been completed, and it has!

    "That" action is making this film complete by having Gene, Frank and Kathryn play in one of the best movies ever made! This movie is fun and romantic, and to top it of Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra are amazing. I recommend this movie for anyone who who wants a movie that will leave them smiling! ( If you liked Anchors Aweigh, I also suggest "On the Town" and "Singin' in the Rain")
  • Awesome!

    This is one of my most favored musicals. This is a prime example of what illustrious films MGM produced back in the 1930s and 1940s. If you enjoy Sinatra films this is one of his best.
  • YAY!

    I'm sooooo utterly happy that iTunes put this movie up! It is a wonderful musical starring Frank Sinatra, at the height of his singing career in 1945, Gene Kelly, and Kathryn Grayson. It has great music, Sinatra sings so beautifully. Kathryn Grayson with her stiking Soprano voice, does a wonderful job as well. As for Gene Kelly, he does not dissapoint, as usual. The man is just so dang good! He does a cute little dancing number with Jerry the mouse (Tom and Jerry) that won awards. Overall its a great movie. : )
