Tribute to Sinatra's Films in London, UK

Sinatra! The Voice on Screen

Location: BFI Southbank

From May 2 - 26, the BFI Southbank in London plays host to the season of Frank Sinatra. The release of Vincente Minnelli’s magnificent but rarely seen drama Some Came Running (1958) on May 16 is the jewel in the crown of a season of Frank Sinatra’s films playing at BFI Southbank throughout May. The film will also screen at the Barbican. Sinatra stars in one of his finest roles as Dave Hirsh, an ex-serviceman and disillusioned writer who, after a wild night’s drinking, finds himself on a Greyhound bus heading for his home town in Indiana. Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine give superb performances as his partners-in-crime.
