30 Day Movie Challenge-Day 11

A movie that changed your opinion of something.

When I was young I equated Frank Sinatra with old people. He was a singer old folks liked, not young vibrant hip 'with it' dudes like me. He belonged in the pantheon that included Andy Williams, Guy Lombardo, and Kate Smith, all relics of the previous generations who held none of my interest. But after seeing his performance in this film, I decided he was all right as an actor. I'm still no fan of his singing, it's all Lawrence Welky old fogey stuff to me, and so is all that phony Rat Pack 'cool' bullshit stuff, but thanks to this film I'm willing to put up with his acting.
