A sprinkling of MGM magic and the genius of Gene Kelly could transform the corniest of plots into a thing of joy. Set in 1908, Take Me Out to the Ball Game reunites Kelly and Frank Sinatra as star players in an American League baseball team who also happen to have dreams of making it big in vaudeville. Swimming sensation Esther Williams has a rare chance to stay dry as the feisty new owner of the team. The legendary Busby Berkeley was in the director's chair but Kelly and Stanley Donen carried much of the responsibility for the film and for the snap and sparkle of delightful showstoppers like 'The Hat My Father Wore on St Patrick's Day'.
