"On the Town is a loopy, anything-goes movie, graced with the freshness of a Hollywood nouvelle vague."
—Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
 
On the Town (1949)

Directed by Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly
With Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Betty Garrett
Run time: 98min

 

Kelly, Sinatra, and Munshin light up the screen as three sailors in the Big Apple with a one-day pass to see everything. Set to a Comden and Green score, this love letter to grand old New York marks the film directing debut of theater director Donen and Kelly, who shot everything on location.

 
Daybreak Express (1953)

Directed by D.A. Pennebaker
Run time: 5min

 

Trailblazing documentarian Pennebaker’s very first work was this jazzy chronicle of a ride aboard the Third Avenue El, snappily edited to the rhythms of the titular Duke Ellington track.
