A Hole in the Head (1959) is a comedy film directed by Frank Capra, featuring Frank Sinatra, Edward G. Robinson, Eleanor Parker, and Carolyn Jones. For me, the real star was the down-in-the-heels hotel located on South Beach’s Ocean Drive. Unfortunately, the interior scenes were sets, but the exteriors belonged to the very real Cardozo Hotel, which is now owned by Gloria Estefan and her husband.

Where have all our great actors and actresses gone. Seems just a second ago they were entertaining us on TV and the theaters and now they are gone. That was the classy era where actors and actresses were really great and talented. I sure miss them.

Peter I concur. Now thanks to technology, any first year film student can be an overnight Steven Spielberg . < This has incredibly lowered the production value of just about every movie made.
