For Me and My Gal (1942), starring Gene Kelly, Judy Garland, George Murphy
Synopsis of For Me and My Gal
Gene Kelly makes his film debut in this WWI musical playing a man who starts a vaudeville act with a young woman and they become determined to play The Palace. He deliberately injures his hand to avoid being drafted into the army, in order to have that shot. It’s not that he’s a coward, or unpatriotic. He’s simply too focused on that goal to see what’s staring him in the face.
