Movie Info

Gambler Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) has few options for the location of his big craps game. Needing $1,000 to pay a garage owner to host the game, Nathan bets Sky Masterson (Marlon Brando) that Sky cannot get virtuous Sarah Brown (Jean Simmons) out on a date. Despite some resistance, Sky negotiates a date with her in exchange for bringing people into her mission. Meanwhile, Nathan's longtime fiancée, Adelaide (Vivian Blaine), wants him to go legit and marry her.

    Sinatra is boring but Brando isn't (a truly surprising thing to see in a musical) and while some of the cuts to the original stage show are vexing, overall it keeps the spirit and style intact. We should be very grateful Kidd's fantastic choreography got to stay in.

    Great performances, suave vocals from Sinatra, and irresistible Marlon Brando charm. What more could you ask for? Guys and Dolls is truly a classic.

    The opening says it all. Or rather, shows it. A beautifully choreographed piece sets the tone of the film, the city, and the characters. As we follow a watch being stolen numerous times, it shows us the petty crime, and the fun and exuberant dances show us the whimsical nature. Sinatra is great as Nathan Detroit, and Brando shows us a completely new side to himself. Sure, his singing may have been cut and pasted from multiple takes, but cinema is all abut creating illusions. The film may be gentle and obvious, but none can deny the sheer excellence of routines, such as the sewer craps game. Making good use of color, movement, humor, and songs, this is a classically addictive film.

    If you don't think Brando has range, you need to see this movie. I love it, the songs are good, the actors are good, the story is interesting, and it's exciting and romantic too. I love it.
