Damon Runyon was as much of a character as the gamblers,
grifters and gangsters he wrote about.
This episode of the Damon Runyon Theater, The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown, gave us the musical Guys and Dolls, with Sky Masterson, Nathan Detroit, Harry the Horse, and Nicely-Nicely Jones (Nicely-Nicely Johnson in the movie version).
Narrator Broadway (John Brown, who also played Digger O'Dell, the Friendly Undertaker, on The Life of Riley) tells the story.
