Description
Based on the Broadway show from the Damon Runyon short story and filled to the brim with Frank Loesser tunes such as 'Luck Be A Lady' and 'Sit Down, You're Rocking The Boat', this outrageously comic film featuring Marlon Brando's bold musical debut is a colourful tale about gamblers, a feisty Salvation Army lass, and a dance-hall girl with a pining heart. Veteran gambler Sky Masterson (Brando) takes a bet from Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) that he can win the affection of a soldier (Jean Simmons) in the Salvation Army, setting himself up to lose both his money and his heart. Romance is the last thing the gambler and the missionary expect, and they fight against their attraction for all they're worth in glowing singing and dancing numbers. Love proves to be contagious as spicy dancer Miss Adelaide, in a role re-created for the screen from Broadway by showstopper Vivian Blaine, is determined to get her fiance, Nathan, to the altar one way or another. Stubby Kaye and B.S. Pully also reprise their stage roles in this glorious Cinemascope film that earned four Academy Award nominations. GUYS AND DOLLS consistently ranks among the most popular film musicals of all time.

Legendary Hollywood producer Sam Goldwyn spent a million bucks on the rights to this story and another 5 million on the production - a vast sum back in 1955 - and it was money well spent. It's a lively story about gamblers and gals with such terrific numbers as Luck Be a Lady and Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat. Goldwyn had wanted Gene Kelly for the role of ace dice man Sky Masterson but had to settle for non-singer, non-dancer Marlon Brando - who does a wonderful job. Frank Sinatra, Jean Simmons and (especially)Vivian Blaine join in the fun. It's just a shame that the movie goes on for about half an hour too long. . .

What can you say about a classic?
Excellent cast, music and choreography.
I still find it hard to believe that Marlon Brando is the lead when he is much better known for more straight roles. Having said that he is a great lead, alongside Frank Sinatra.
One for the collection I think as the music and the humour will never date.

We had this on video but no longer have a video player. The extra features were well worth buying it for, truly fascinating showing the transition from stage to screen and explaining why some numbers were discarded and others were written for the film. Love it!
