Some Came Running

"OK"

Some Came Running Review


You can dress Frank Sinatra up as a mysterious ex-G.I. with a wad of money and a flair with a pen, but that doesn't mean the movie in question will evolve beyond a cut-rate Peyton Place. Some Came Running starts with promise, as Ol' Blue Eyes drifts into town and dredges up all sort of troubling history with his family, but ends up being a kind of tepid love triange involving Frank, a luscious blonde, and Shirley Maclaine. In the end, some do come running in a memorable yet odd finale, but they just don't get there fast enough to elevate the story into the classic some think it is. Based on a James Jones novel.
