Sinatra's a real wimp in this



I can't believe this is the same Sinatra who was bedding starlets by the dozens and beating up photographers. What a wet blanket of a character, i kept wishing, begging he would leave Gene Kelly alone. It seemed like it was Gene he was in love with not Kathryn Grayson. oh well it certainly wasn't type casting.

This was his first big role. The film was made in 1945, he'd only had a couple small roles before it. Anchors Aweigh was his big break. From Here to Eternity was made in 1953, his first really good dramatic part.
