Critics reviews

This artifice gave rise to a strangely heightened sense of immediacy: it thrust performance front and center, as if theatrically, and gave Mankiewicz’s distinctive cast—headed by Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons and Vivian Blaine—a proscenium-like showcase, and they make the most of it.

Conceivably the best picture Sam Goldwyn ever produced, this 1955 blockbuster musical has an undeservedly bad rep, largely because the two leads . . . aren’t professional singers. In fact, they both do wonders with Frank Loesser’s dynamite score because they perform their numbers with feeling and sincerity, and their efforts to live up to their material are perfectly in tune with the aspirations of their characters (as well as the songs themselves); in short, this may be the only Method musical.
