...may have been more than a bit outdated even when it was first released in 1955.

An escapist, sing-along joy with a winning edge of grown-up wit, making for a perfect festive season night out for anyone fond of a splash of old-school style.

No one's cool enough to blow off a movie starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra. Not you, not me...nobody.

Brando the singing actor and Sinatra the acting singer make a remarkable pair as sharp-suited gangsters and gamblers, along with their "dolls", Vivian Blaine and the English actress Jean Simmons.

Snappy musical about ne'er-do-well gamblers in Gotham is still an unbeatable hand.

Ultimate odd couple Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra play charismatic cats in hats and spats on the mean (but very clean) streets of New York.

It is chained to its stage musical origins and at times seems limited by its studio-bound sets and camera angles. Nevertheless, it is a joyful tale, about New York street gamblers who have a run-in with the Salvation Army, and the songs are terrific. Bran

Brando wasn't producer Sam Goldwyn's first choice as Sky (that was Gene Kelly) but he acquits himself outstandingly.
