United Artists One Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded FRANK SINATRA EDDIE HODGES EDWARD G. ROBINSON ELEANOR PARKER CAROLYN JONES

Original United Artists One-Sheet Poster for the Frank Capra movie A HOLE IN THE HEAD (1959) starring Frank Sinatra, Edward G. Robinson, Eleanor Parker, Carolyn Jones, Thelma Ritter, Keenan Wynn and Eddie Hodges. Capra Goes to Florida - it might as well be called that. The action centers around a Hotel managed by the Sinatra character. Sinatra is deeply in debt, is a single parent with a near-teenage son played by Eddie Hodges. Edward G. Robinson plays the responsible older brother from the Bronx who wants Sinatra to return to New York. It's kind of a weird movie in Sinatra's filmography, directed in a folksy way by Capra. Hodges was somewhat of a showbiz prodigy, having been in the original cast of Meredith Wilson's THE MUSIC MAN on Broadway. That role in the movie would later be famously played by Ron Howard. Parker is thrown in for looks and Jones for a dash of hipster cool. The most memorable thing to emerge from this movie was the song HIGH HOPES, which was written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen. Sinatra would turn the song into a campaign song for JFK in 1960. The poster is folded and is in fine plus condition.
