Movie Review - A Hole in the Head

In my movie reviews, I give my brief thoughts on what I watched. Sometimes I will expound on those thoughts, but more often than not, I will just give a brief opinion. You can read plot descriptions on Internet Movie Database or on Amazon.

A Hole in the Head. Starring Frank Sinatra. Directed by Frank Capra (1959).


Notice the repeated use of the word "Wonderful" in the trailer above.

This film features great use of music, which makes sense, because it is a vehicle for Sinatra.

But beyond the great music, I just couldn't do it. I tried. But I couldn't stay awake. I tried watching it three different times, and I fell asleep each time. Sometimes multiple times.

I'm pretty sure it has everything to do with the fact that:

1) I hate musicals. Synonyms include loathe and despise.

2) After It's a Wonderful Life, Capra's films lost their allure...at least for me they did. And that makes me sad.

1 star out of 5.
