Donen and Kelly's last musical together, and an exhilarating - if rather odd - follow-up to the marvellous On the Town. Dealing with three soldier buddies who reunite ten years after the war, only to discover that they now have nothing in common, it features some great dance numbers (Kelly on roller-skates, the trio dancing with dustbin-lids for shoes, Charisse and a chorus of plug-uglies in the gym), and a strangely cynical sense of humour about their incompatibility and about television.
