Note: Sinatra was originally set to co-star opposite Shirley Jones in
the film version of Carousel in 1955. Sinatra left the production when
he learned every scene would have to be filmed twice - once for the
Cinemascope cameras and again for Cinemascope 55 cameras. Sinatra figured
he ought to be paid twice since he was, in effect, making two movies.
Sinatra had already been fitted for his costumes and started prerecording
the score by the time he left at the start of filming. He was replaced
by Gordon MacRae. [RF]

Shirley Jones is Frank's guest this Valentine's day, along with his
