Hit the Deck [1955]

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
