About Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Take Me Out to the Ball Game box art

Here's one ball game you can't afford to miss. Film legends Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra join forces as the most talented double-play combination to hit the major leagues since Tinker to Evers to Chance. In the off-season, when they aren't throwing out base runners for team owner Esther Williams, the duo doubles as vaudeville's best musical act. With Kelly tap dancing and Ol' Blue Eyes balladeering, this grand-slam flick covers every base.
