Frank Sinatra, 'Some Came Running'

"Some Came Running" (1959) "From Here to Eternity" isn't the only James Jones tale Sinatra appeared in. He also starred in Vincente Minnelli's well-acted melodrama. Though not on par with "Eternity," it's still a compelling drama, with Sinatra well-cast as David Hirsch, a World War II veteran and writer who returns in 1948 to his Indiana hometown, where he is torn between a lovely young teacher (Martha Hyer) and a sweet floozy named Ginny (Shirley MacLaine in her Oscar-nominated performance). Sinatra also teams up with Dean Martin for the first time on film. He plays a gambler with the outrageous name of Bama Dillert who becomes friends with Hirsch. Unknown
