Reality is just too tough right now—we need to escape into the fantasy world of the old-time B’way musical, and for me anyway, that means Guys and Dolls.
If you haven’t rented the DVD of the Brando/Sinatra/Jean Simmons then do so immediately, and I guarantee you a wonderful, escapist evening. Old school, for sure…but pretty much pure bliss, I think you’ll agree.
Now, I grant you the Marlon Brando isn’t Sinatra when it comes to the vocal pipes, but he sure captures the spirit of Luck be a Lady. And if Nicely Nicely’s spiritual boat ride doesn’t lift your soul, then just sit down and stop rockin’ the boat!
