Story: Triple bill featuring three classic musicals. In 'Man of La Mancha' (1971), Don Quixote (Peter O'Toole) is the mad, aging nobleman who embarrasses his respectable family by his adventures. Backed by his faithful sidekick Sancho Panza (James Coco), he duels windmills and defends his perfect lady Dulcinea (Sophia Loren), who is actually a downtrodden whore named Aldonza. In 'Star!' (1968) Julie Andrews plays legendary musical comedy star Gertrude Lawrence. The film traces Lawrence's progress from ambitious young actress to the toast of London and Broadway. Her success is offset by a stormy private life, which is given some stability when she falls in love with an American financier (Richard Crenna). 'Guys and Dolls' (1955) is a romantic gangster musical starring Frank Sinatra and a singing Marlon Brando. Nathan Detroit (Sinatra) is a New York gambler who needs $1000 in order to stage a big game during the Prohibition era. To get the money, he issues a typically enigmatic challenge to master gambler Sky Masterson (Brando): he must dine with a puritanical Salvation Army girl (Jean Simmons) - and the dinner must be in held in Cuba. Masterson wins the bet and also falls for the girl.
