MOVIE: Anchors Aweigh

July 10, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

anchorsIt is hard to believe, but Frank Sinatra would be celebrating his 100th birthday this year.  In commemoration of Frank’s life, and in participation with this summer’s music themed reading program, the library will be screening three films from Sinatra’s long movie career.  We will begin with ANCHORS AWEIGH.  This mammoth musical is the story of two sailors on leave in Hollywood. Brash Joseph Brady (Gene Kelly) has promised his shy pal Clarence Doolittle (Frank Sinatra) that he will introduce Clarence to all the glamorous movie starlets whom he allegedly knows so well. Actually, the only actress whom Joseph meets is bit player Susan Abbott (Kathryn Grayson).  ANCHORS AWEIGH was a huge hit in 1945, and features Gene Kelly dancing with such partners as Jerry the cartoon mouse.
