Movie Info

Based on Arnold Schulman's Broadway play of the same name, this comedy finds widower Tony Manetta (Frank Sinatra) struggling to own and operate a Miami hotel. Irresponsible in both business and romance, Tony is dedicated to his young son, Ally (Eddie Hodges), though he butts heads with his own brother, Mario (Edward G. Robinson). When Mario agrees to help Tony out financially, the catch is that the bachelor has to settle down and find a mother for his son.

Audience Reviews for A Hole in the Head

  • Jun 29, 2012
    Capra's second to last film, made in 1959, and set in Miami Beach, shows widower swinger single pop Sinatra trying to stay financially afloat while trying to raise his serious young son in a beachside hotel. Thelma Ritter and Eddie G. and Capra's deft touch lift the proceedings considerably and the piece includes the song "High Hopes".
