New York, New York



If you thought DeNiro would never do a musical, you are wrong. This underrated Scorsese gem stars a young Liza Minelli (also known to Arrested Development fans as Lucille Austero) singing and dancing her way through life. DeNiro is a saxophone player who has just come home from the war. They fall in love and have a tumultuous Ike and Tina style relationship. This film features Minelli's 'New York, New York' which Frank Sinatra later made famous. I recommend not to watch the director's commentary for this film - instead of Scorsese, it's an unidentified female's voice who sounds like a robot reading cue cards and not saying anything particularly important either.
