Guys and Dolls
Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, Vivian Blaine
Based on the popular 1950 Broadway musical of the same name, Guys and Dolls is a hugely entertaining musical with some of the brightest stars of its day, including Marlon Brando in his only musical role. The film was made by Samuel Goldwyn Productions, distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve, Cleopatra).
1950s New York: all the hot gamblers are in town, and they’re all depending on Nathan Detroit (Sinatra) to set up the next game. The only problem? He needs money, and to get it, bets inveterate gambler Sky Masterson (Brando) that he can’t get a date with virtuous, demure Sarah Brown (Simmons). Meanwhile, Nathan’s longtime fiancée Adelaide (Blaine) is desperate for him to marry her so they can finally settle down.
With serious star power, crackling dialogue and phenomenal songs (including ‘Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat’), Guys and Dolls is a five star entertainment and a real joy to watch.
We are delighted to be able to offer a gorgeous new restoration of the film for DCP bookings.
