    Gene Kelly Costume Hat and Scarf From "On the Town." This MGM classic musical had it all: music by Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Leonard Bernstein; the all-time hit musical number "New York, New York"; New York City location shooting; and perhaps most memorably, the spirited singing and hoofing of Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra. Here is a US Navy sailor's hat (with MGM costume tag) and black silk scarf worn by Kelly (who co-directed the film with Stanley Donen -- their directorial debut) in the 1949 musical. Kelly's name is typed on the costume tag. Both hat and scarf are in Excellent condition with some mild soiling to the hat.
