Mine: A great musical made in to a second rate movie. Bad casting. Marlon Brando!, what were they thinking?
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Lavish Hollywoodization of classic Broadway musical based on Damon Runyon's colorful characters with Blaine, Kaye, Pully, and Johnny Silver reprising their stage performances and Brando making a not-bad musical debut as gambler Sky Masterson. Tuneful Frank Loesser score includes ``Fugue for Tinhorns,'' ``If I Were a Bell,'' ``Luck Be a Lady,'' Blaine's memorable ``Adelaide's Lament,'' and Stubby's showstopping ``Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat. '' CinemaScope.

Chris, I couldn't agree more -- I really really adore the part of Sky Masterson, and I was in depression when i heard that Marlon Brando can't sing. It was really very traumatic.

Would you like more informaion on Johnny Silver for your bio? He was my father. He just past away on February 1, 2003... There was a complete detailed obituary in the Variety, on Feb.26th & 27th and there is a nice tribute to him at www.forevernetwork.com. Let me know if you have any questions. Jennie Silver
