A Hole in the Head

Legendary film director Frank Capra directs this cheesy little comedy starring Frank Sinatra and little Eddie Hodges (who together sing the Academy Award winning song, "High Hopes.") Sinatra is an immature father who is about to be evicted from his apartment and asks his older brother, Edward G. Robinson, for assistance. Robinson thinks Sinatra is a no good slacker and attempts to get custody of Hodges, who is actually much more mature than his father but loves him anyway. Robinson also tries to get Sinatra hitched with a wealthy widower, much to the dismay of his current girlfriend. This comedy is very unfocused meant as an audience-pleaser for a 50's audience and to an extent, it's still pleasing today.
