Guys And Dolls is a true American musical classic. Based on a Damon Runyon story and originally produced as a stage play, the screen version stars Frank Sinatra as reliable Nathan Detroit who is up to his knees trying to throw the biggest crap game in town while hiding the truth from his fianc
Compared to the previously released, non-anamorphic DVD, this new anamorphically enhanced 2.55:1 DVD picture exhibits subtle improvements, although the film seems long overdue for a five-star restoration.

Reason #112 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The first thing that grabbed my interest was the DVD reviews. But after I purchased that first issue and read the reviews, I got hooked on all of the other information contained in each issue. I had adopted the DVD format fairly early on, and I have had a strong preference for widescreen, dating back to my VHS days. The technical information is a godsend. I feel that I have saved so much money by avoiding inferior quality DVDs. I was very ignorant about the technology out there for home theatre and was not aware of the resources I had that were really going to waste. (5.1 in my movie collection) I read and read and read and finally updated my antiquated system. It is such a wonderful joy to turn down the lights, turn up the sound, and enjoy movies more than I ever could at a theatre. I knew it was worth it even more when my wife said, “Cool” as we watched The Others with true surround sound. Widescreen Review has actually helped improve my quality of life!
