Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Joseph L Mankiewicz

WITH: Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, Stubby Kaye

Based on the Damon Runyon short stories of Broadway, the musical Guys and Dolls is plays out on a stunning studio set that extends the artifice of the stories. Fom a simple story - a ganster takes a bet that he can win the heart of a Salvation Army lady - and a pyrotechnic opening sequence it is clear the film is unlike any other with its all-star cast, frenzied choreography, witty lyrical dialogue and memorable songs. What more could you want from a musical? Exceptional Hollywood.

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO. bfimusicals.co.uk #bfimusicals
