On the Town is a 1944 musical comedy by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, with music by Leonard Bernstein, about the adventures of three sailors on liberty in New York City. Traveling around the city by cab and by subway, they variously visit the Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Hall, Coney Island (in both imaginary and real versions), three nightclubs and two girls' apartments before their twenty-four hours are up.

The musical was made into a 1949 MGM film version, which featured Gene Kelly, Vera-Ellen, Frank Sinatra, Betty Garrett, Jules Munshin, Ann Miller, and not much of the original score. Comden and Green were around to write the screenplay, so the plot stayed roughly the same.
