Re the movie version of Guys and Dolls: Marlon Brando was more believable as an Okinawan guide and interpretor in Teahouse of the August Moon than as Nathan Detroit [one of the worst casting decisions ever]. A few years earlier, Sinatra would have been spot on in that role.
Adelaide was reprised in the movie from her Broadway turn by Vivian Blaine, a really fine musical comedy actress.
