This is one of my all-time favorite musicals, so I have always loved this movie. The songs are fun and catchy, so much so, that I often have one or two of them playing in my head. If you love old musicals, like Frank Sinatra, and want to see Marlon Brando croon a love song, check this movie out!

GREAT 1955 musical - possibly the best I have ever seen. I'm really enjoying seeing 40's and 50's musicals, I was too young to be attracted to when they were originally released - thanks KCLS!

Great production, choreography, acting, etc. - and (according to Wikipedia) Marlon Brando actually sang his songs live - no lip syncing overdubs, etc.

Vivian Blaine was new to me and I have more of her performances on my For Later shelf.

I prefer the song line-up in the stage version. Brando's dancing is good, and he acted the songs well and did his best re the singing. I can understand why they cast him, but would have preferred someone with a stronger voice. All of the other performers are excellent in all respects.

A musical from the past. If you are a fan of this type of films you will like it. Watching a young Brando doing his thing is a bonus. I still prefer 'West Side Story', though.

DVD had bad tracks. Can't enjoy the opining scene and many others smoothly.

In my opinion this musical movie is much better than the well-known "West End Stories".
It does not need the presence of Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra to raise its rating. The acting, the dances and the music (vocal & instrumental) are excellent.
