“A grand, energetic and immensely enjoyable adaptation of the popular Broadway musical. With a score by Leonard Bernstein and a book by Betty Comden and Adolph Greene, directors Kelly and Donen have opened up, with location shooting, this exuberant tale about three sailors on a 24-hour pass, and of their romantic adventures in New York City. Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Jules Munchin are the men in uniform; and Vera-Ellen, Betty Garrett, and Ann Miller are the women with whom they meet and fall in love.” (TLA Video & DVD Guide, 2003)
