From the pen of staff writer Miss Moira Macdonald comes the post "Old Hollywood story of the day" that shares how our Dino and Mr. Sinatra in 1961 came onto the set of the filmin' of the dramatic classic play "The Children's Hour." And what did these two guys do.....accordin' to Miss Shirley, they would "throw spitballs in a very dramatic scene that Audrey Hepburn and I were doing.” Shirley even noted that "there is one that is actually in the film."

Old Hollywood story of the day
Posted by Moira Macdonald
OK, so I just liked this story. Shirley MacLaine, who became friends with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin while making “Some Came Running” in 1958, shared an anecdote this week in an interview with the Los Angeles Times:
. . . Sinatra and Martin weren’t above pulling pranks on MacLaine, especially during the filming of William Wyler’s 1961 drama “The Children’s Hour.”
“Dean and Frank used to come on the set and throw spitballs in a very dramatic scene that Audrey Hepburn and I were doing,” MacLaine recalled recently. “They knew how to throw the spitballs without catching the light. There is one that is actually in the film.”
Kind of makes you want to go re-watch “The Children’s Hour,” doesn’t it?
