‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame!’

This is our last film in our series of “Astoria’s Relations.”

Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra play ball in a big way as 1900s vaudevillians who spend the winter flinging onstage blarney and the summer flinging the ol’ horsehide for baseball’s world champs, the Wolves.

Sinatra is second sacker Dennis Ryan and Kelly is shortstop Eddie O’Brien in this Busby Berkeley-directed film.

Their performance in this movie that persuaded producer Arthur Freed to star them in another film “On the Town.”

This program is supported by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society and the surrounding communities of Long Island City.
