"GUYS AND DOLLS is a true American musical classic."
Brando's bold musical debut based on the Damon Runyon comedy about gamblers and a Salvation Army lass is adapted for the screen by director Joseph L. Mankiewicz. The colorful Cinemascope film posits Sky Masterson [Marlon Brando] betting Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) that he can win the heart of a lady "soldier" (Jean Simmons). The movie features popular Frank Loesser tunes such as "Luck Be a Lady," and many of the original Broadway performers reprise their roles.
- Many of the stars from the Broadway musical reprised their roles in the film version of GUYS AND DOLLS.
- The stage musical was based on Damon Runyon's short story.
- The film earned four Academy Award nominations: Cinematography [color], Art Direction [color], Costume, and Scoring of a Musical.
- In his 1995 memoir MY AMERICAN HERO, General Colin Powell lists GUYS AND DOLLS as one of his favorite films.
