YMMV / Guys and Dolls

  • Adaptation Displacement: There was a book, believe it or not.
  • Ear Worm: Most of the songs, but "Follow the Fold" in particular has a tendency to get into people's heads and never leave. Ever. Woe betide you if you're working on a production of the show and will have to hear that song approximately ten thousand times!
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Nicely-Nicely Johnson is a very beloved character. It helps that he's funny and sings "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat."
    • Nicely-Nicely also appears in the 1942 Lucille Ball-Henry Fonda movie, The Big Street. The movie was based on a Damon Runyon story, "Little Pinks." In this movie, Nicely-Nicely is played by Eugene Pallette instead of Stubby Kaye - and he doesn't sing. Lucy's character does, though.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Frank Sinatra went on to make "Luck Be a Lady" one of his signature numbers, which can make it a bit jarring that's he's not the one who sings it in the film.
