Question 10

Frank Sinatra was initially cast as the leading man in this 1950s Broadway musical adaptation, and had even pre-recorded the songs before dropping out. He cited a compensation dispute with the producers, although the rocky status of his marriage to Ava Gardner was another likely factor. Which movie subsequently wound up as a reunion of the same male and female leads from another musical adaptation released the previous year, from a show by the same Broadway writing team?
