Some Came Running, 1958
Some Came Running stars Shirley MacLaine alongside friends Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. In it, army veteran, former writer and alcoholic Dave (played by Frank) returns to his seemingly pristine, status-driven hometown only to gravitate toward the wrong side of the tracks—where he finds the vulgar Ginny Moorehead (Shirley) and professional gambler Bama Dillert (Dean). Worlds collide and hypocrisy comes to light as Dave struggles between the respectable circle his own brother has fostered and the rougher life to which he is drawn.

The film earned five Oscar® nominations, including Shirley's first Best Actress nod for her performance.
