My name is Jason Raso and I love musicals. I'm not ashamed to admit it.
One of my favourites is Guys and Dolls (1955). It really is a fabulous movie. Seeing Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra together in their prime is a sight to behold. Guys and Dolls has a great cast, a great story and a great soundtrack. In addition to Brando and Sinatra, the cast included Jean Simmons, Stubby Kaye and Vivian Blaine. The soundtracks includes some fabulous songs like "Luck Be A Lady" (sung by Brando!), "If I Were a Bell" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat" (my personal favourite).
The movie looks great too! The set and costume design is awesome. Movies like this are the reason I have such an affinity for the style of the 50's. Highly recommended!
In New York, a gambler is challenged to take a cold female missionary to Havana, but they fall for each other, and the bet has a hidden motive to finance a crap game.
