Capturing a Golden Moment #15: Guys and Dolls

In this series, I'd like to present some exceptional scenes inspired by cinema's most gifted artists of yesteryear.


Guys and Dolls (1955)


Director: Joseph L. Mankiewicz


Scene: "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat"


Stubby Kaye as Nicely-Nicely Johnson sings this showstopping song fabulously, perhaps as a result of perfecting the role and number on Broadway during the show's 1200 performances. Guys and Dolls won the 1951 Tony Award for the Best Musical. With such lively and exuberant characters and songs like the one seen here, it's easy to see why.
