A Hole In The Head
$15.95 – $21.99
Capraesque in every way, A Hole In The Head comes to DVD and Blu-ray in all its rollicking, fun-filled, song-filled glory. With his master touch, legendary director Frank Capra (It’s A Wonderful Life, Pocket Full Of Miracles) once again catches lightning in bottle when he teams with Frank Sinatra (On The Town, The Manchurian Candidate, Pal Joey), Edward G. Robinson (Little Caesar, Key Largo, The Ten Commandments), and Eleanor Parker (The Sound of Music, Pride of the Marines, Of Human Bondage) in the sentimental comedy A Hole In The Head. Frank Sinatra stars as Tony Manetta, a widower living well beyond his means, in Miami where he’s raising his young son, Alvin (Eddie Hodges). With a limited understanding of the word “responsibility,” Tony, finding himself in debt and with his back against the wall, decides to reach out to his older brother, Mario, for yet another in a string of loans, fabricating that the money is needed for Alvin who has taken ill. The plot takes full-swing when Mario and his wife decide to pay Tony and Alvin a visit. In the tradition of It’s A Wonderful Life, Mr. Deeds Goes To Washington, Pocket Full of Miracles, director Frank Capra weaves a comic tale filled with heart, laughs and love … and introduced the classic standard “High Hopes” to the world. Featured in supporting roles are Thelma Ritter (All About Eve, Miracle on 34th Street, Rear Window), Keenan Wynn (Annie Get Your Gun, The Great Race, Nashville) and Carolyn Jones (The Seven Year Itch, TV’s The Addams Family).
