A lesser GUYS AND DOLLS has Douglas and Franciosa (the latter in his first film) as two small-time gangsters who run a Broadway nightclub. They fill the club with stock characters, trying to make it a home away from home for its denizens. Simmons, a schoolteacher doubling as a secretary,

provides romance for Franciosa when she goes to work at the club. This is a film full of good cheer and good performances, a sweet, slightly naive little film. Songs include "This Could Be the Night," "Hustlin' News Gal," "I Got It Bad," (Duke Ellington, Paul Francis Webster), "I'm Gonna Live till

I Die" (Al Hoffman, Walter Kent, Mann Curtis), "Taking a Chance on Love" (John Latouche, Ted Fetter, Vernon Duke), "Trumpet Boogie," "Mamba Combo," "Blue Moon" (Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart), "Dream Dancing" (Cole Porter), and "The Tender Trap" (Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Heusen).
