Sky Masterson is a Superhero

Screenshot Guys and Dolls 1955

I watched Guys and Dolls the musical yesterday and several things stood out to me that I hadn’t noticed before. The first, is that I’m convinced someone on staff had a smoking fetish. Consider the image below, set in a club in Havana. The camera lingers on her smoking for a good 5 seconds before Sergeant Sarah Brown, Sky Masterson’s date fumes and strikes her cup to get his attention.
