Joe and Clarence, two navy sailors who have a few days leave in Hollywood. All Joe wants to do is to have a good time and meet up with his girl, the unseen Lola. Clarence on the other hand just wants to get a girl. They soon meet a little boy who ran away from home and wants to join the navy. They take him home and soon meet his young and beautiful singer-wannabe aunt Susan. Clarence develops a crush on her, so he asks Joe to help him get Susan to like him. Soon Joe gets himself caught in between a promise to Susan to meet a big time music producer and trying to get Clarence ready for their date. The only problem is, Joe doesn't know the music producer and he's starting to fall in love with Susan himself. So what's a guy to do?

Simply hilarious!
Right from the start you see that "Anchors Aweigh" is a great comedy. Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra make such a funny team! The songs they sing together are pure entertainment. Kathryn Grayson is gorgeous and really sweet. Dean Stockwell is the cutiest child actor I've never seen. If you are fond of piano, you'll be amazed by José Iturbi. This movie was the first one to combine animation with real actors and it did that wonderfully in an unforgettable dance number. Undoubtedly one of Kelly's funniest movies.

A great musical extravaganza!
This movie is one of the great musical extravaganza in the history of the comedy cinema, along with Ziegfield Follies and the other movies of the MGM Freed-Edens era. It's very particular the choice also to use the great Josè Iturbi in the most beautiful and great scene of this movie, when he plays with many childrens and young pianist the great Hungarian Rhapsody by Franz Liszt. I have listened all the great pianists do that (Horowitz, Hamelin, Busoni, ecc...), but the version of Iturbi is magnificent as Liszt want to do play.
Also, the Tom and Jerry number, unforgettable. Kelly and Sinatra together are always wonderful and Kathryn Grayson is beautiful as ever. Chapeau!
