Features: Dolby Digital 5.1 Remastered Soundtrack, Widescreen, Original Theatrical Trailer

The Movie: Guys and Dolls is a musical, set in New York in 1938. It revolves around a gambler, Nathan Detroit, and his bit that he can seduce a local missionary, who he eventually falls in love with. While enjoyable if you like musicals, for others it won't be very entertaining.

Picture: The picture is amazingly good for a movie that is 62 years old, and is free (for the most part) of defects. It is a very sharp print, certainly better than the VHS of it.

Sound: While remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1, the sound doesn't take advantage of the surround sound, not even during the musical numbers, where it could really add something. It is, however, quite audible, and is again better than the VHS versions that have previously been available.

Extras: The only extra is the Original Theatrical Trailer.

Conclusion: While not a bad movie, it isn't for everyone, and the disc certainly doesn't have enough extras to warrant purchase unless you really are a fan of this particular film or genre. If you think you might like it, rent it, other wise I wouldn't bother with it.
