Great songs, stellar performances and a star studded cast make this 1955 musical, a time honored classic. With indestructible numbers like, “If I Were a Bell,”“A Bushel and a Peck,” and “Luck be a Lady,” it’s just as vibrant today as it was then. Guys and Dolls is the saga of incurable gamblers, Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit, who involve each other in a plot to maintain The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York. Nominated for countless film awards, it won Jean Simmons a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical Comedy and is considered, by many, to be the best musical ever performed. John Cavanagh of Insidepulse.com says, “The jokes are still funny and the love stories are still touching, the film just has that universal story that everyone can enjoy with lovable characters with real emotions.” [1955, USA, Runtime: 150 min, Not Rated]
