Gene Kelly sings, dances and swashbuckles his way into Judy Garland's heart in this Oscar-nominated musical directed by Garland's then-husband, Vincente Minnelli. Set on a Caribbean island in the 19th century, the film features Kelly—a traveling troubadour— masquerading as pirate "Mack the Black" to woo the sheltered Garland. Highlights include the famous "Be a Clown" number and performances by the acrobatic dance team the Nicholas Brothers.
