Movie Wisdom – Frank Sinatra Edition

5 Jun

The other day, I watched a documentary about Frank Sinatra that included a lot of information that I did not already know. Obviously, Sinatra was one of our great entertainment icons, but it was interesting to get a more intimate look at his life.

The documentary led me to this post and a look into the wisdom that can be found in some of his movies.

Remember the rules. I must have seen the movie, and the quote can come from any character in that movie.

Now, let see what can be found in the dialogue of the Chairman of the Board.Sinatra

From From Here to Eternity

Nobody ever lies about being lonely.

Maybe back in the days of the pioneers a man could go his own way, but today you got to play ball.

A man should be what he can do.

A man loves a thing that don’t mean it’s gotta love him back.

From Ocean’s 11

Fifty percent of something is better than one hundred percent of nothin’.

From The Manchurian Candidate

From Tony Rome

People change. They don’t always turn out the way you expect.
