The results are in...

The results to my poll "Your Favorite?" are here.

The choices were three films that Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly starred in:
Anchors Aweigh (1945), Take Me Out To The Ball Game (1949), and On The Town (1949)

In third place with 3 votes was Anchors Aweigh.



In second place with 4 votes was Take Me Out To The Ball Game (I swear that title is a pain to write...too many words..;-D).



Frank and Gene with Jules Munshin.



And in first place (also my personal choice, but don't worry I only voted once) with 6 votes:

On The Town!



L-R Vera Ellen, Gene Kelly, Ann Miller, Jules Munshin, Betty Garret, and Frank Sinatra.




Notice the resemblance? Ann does.





I seriously adore all these films, but "OTT" I adore just a little bit more.

Anyways, thanks for voting and do vote on my next poll!

Brunhilde Esterhazy is my favoritest character name EVER. I voted for OTT, as you can see.

On the Town is amazing; it got my vote. :D
I love the "New York, New York" song and sing it all the time. XD

DKoren said...

I'm probably the odd girl out on this one!! LOL! I'm an Anchors Aweigh girl, all the way. Other than the opening number in OTT, that movie and its songs drive me right out of the room. I much prefer the more classical, softer music style of Anchors Aweigh. Besides Anchors Aweigh also has adorable Dean Stockwell, and Jerry the mouse, and the Hollywood Bowl! :-D

Millie said...

Sarah, you are right it is a cool name! But, I swear, Betty Garret annoys the heck out of me! It's something about her!

Hana-bi: Hahaha, I sing that song all the time too. At any random time you can hear me belting that (quite horribly...and I'm not being modest ;-D)!

DKoren: I love "AA" too! Kathryn Grayson is always a favorite musical star of mine. And Dean Stockwell was adorable! And I like Jose Iturbi. So it was a tough decision!

Kate Gabrielle said...

I'm with DKoren-- I voted for Anchors Aweigh. To be perfectly frank (no pun intended) I liked it better with JUST Gene and Frank... I'm not a big Jules Munchin fan, and so that takes points off of OTT and TMOTHBG (Millie-- it's so much easier than writing the whole title out! lol) Also I really like the songs best in AA-- especially when Frank sings Brahms Lullaby, and the Susie song :)

Merriam said...

I voted for Take Me Out to the Ballgame. I like On the Town, but everyone annoys me in that except Frank Sinatra. But especially Betty Garrett and Jules Munchin. Why is it that Frank Sinatra always ended up with the irritating girl? Very bothersome.

Millie said...

Kate: I understand! Frank and Gene are a splendid team! And thanks for the tip of writing that name...hahaha! Oh, I love the Susie song too!

Millie said...

Merriam: I am SO with you! I cannot stand Betty Garrett and I myself have often wondered why he always ends up with her! I mean seriously?!?!? Very, Very Bothersome!

Millie said...

Hey, btw, guys, how exactly do you spell Jules Munshin/Munchin's name? I always spelled it with an S but now I see you guys have been spelling it with a C!

Sarah said...

Yeah, Betty Garrett annoys the crap outta me. I like her name tho. ;) And I actually couldn't decide between OTT and AA. I love both! :/

Millie said...

Yes, you can join and be a member of the Betty Garrett Is Annoying club!

You and Merriam are so similar sometimes...it's freaky! (She's a super-Natalie Wood fan too!)

hana-bi. said...

Lulz, I sing it at random times too. XD It's just one of those songs...

Robby Cress said...

Great poll :) I love all these films but I always liked Anchors Aweigh because of some of the Los Angeles locations that can be seen, such as the Hollywood Bowl and MGM studios back when the film was made!

Millie said...

Oh, yes those locales were cool!

And I can see why that would appeal to you...:-)
