Not Rated | | Comedy, Crime, Musical
In New York, a gambler is challenged to take a cold female missionary to Havana, but they fall for each other, and the bet has a hidden motive to finance a crap game.
The songs "A Woman in Love," "Pet Me Poppa" and "Adelaide" were written for the screen version, and were not in the original Broadway show. On Broadway, Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) does not sing in the title song. That was added for the film to increase Sinatra's singing part.
Would you not agree that Mindy's cheesecake is the best cheesecake alive?
Just after the sewer crap game, Nathan tells Adelaide that green and white are the Whitney colors. C.V. Whitney colors are light blue with brown cap. John Hay Whitney raced the Greentree Stable's horses under flamingo and pink colors.
