Guys and Dolls (1955)

Musical; Starring Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, and Vivian Blaine; Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz

This is a fresh and funny version of the Damon Runyon story, with Sinatra and Brando as gamblers who get wrapped up in an improbable bet. This film features some great singing and dancing. It's a pleasure to see the early Brando in a light comic/romantic role. The romantic interplay between Sinatra and Blaine is also very entertaining.
