Saturday Night Cinema

Guys and Dolls
Starring: Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Jean Simmons, and Vivian Blaine
Date: 1955
Directed by: Joseph L. Mankiewicz

This movie is H.O.T. Brando simply sizzles as Sky Masterson and while Sister Sarah isn't as sympathetic a character as one might hope you can't help but feel jealous that she goes home with him.

The songs and choreography are fantastic, the set and costumes divine, the women are women and the men are men. There are no contractions used. There is gamboling and love.

You will be singing many of the songs for the rest of the week.

7 out of 7 thimbles
