Dir. Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen
1949 | 98 mins | US
Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatre, Betty Garrett

Three Navy sailors spend 24 hours in New York in this glorious technicolour musical, starring Gene Kelly & Frank Sinatre.

Whilst racing around the city, sightseeing and trying to experience all the Big Apple has to offer in one day, one of the sailors, Gabey (Kelly), falls in love with a woman on a poster who just happens to be at the next subway station… After losing her the trio go on a caper across New York looking for his love, along the way other romances blossom.

This selection of classic vacation films have been curated in response to the Phoenix Archive Project and to celebrate the new commissions that will be premiered July 16 6PM.

The Phoenix Archive is a newly restored archive of 16mm film footage dating from the 1930s to the 1960s, tracking one family’s travels and activities through this turbulent period. From daily life and family outings to major historical events and world travel, the archive represents an exciting historical record.

The Phoenix Archive Project has been made possible thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and The Radcliffe Trust.
