While indefinitely postponing a wedding date with his longsuffering fiancé Adelaide, gambler Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) finds he’s short the $1,000 he needs to find a place for his floating craps game. He wagers with gentlemen-around-town Sky Masterson (Marlon Brando) that Sky’s smooth way with women will fail when it comes to taking the virtuous Sarah Brown of the Save a Soul Mission out on a date. When Sky slyly offers to bring his friends to her mission in exchange for a dinner date in Havana, the two are surprised to discover they might actually have a future together. The Frank Loesser score includes “Luck Be a Lady” which became a signature song for Sinatra and has been ranked among the Top 100 greatest film songs.
