Thanks, Peebs.  Now, a thirties movie that featured Lucille Ball in a featured role was remade in the fifties with Anita Ekberg in the same role, albeit with a different character name to explain her accent.  Can you name the movie?  

The original film with Lucy was Five Came Back and the Anita Ekberg one was Back From Eternity

Very good, Lavender.  Both movies were directed by John Farrow.    "Back From Eternity" was just shown on TCM late on Friday night.

"Five Came Back" was one of Lucille Ball's first major roles.  RKO was obviously trying to promote Anita Ekberg in "Back From Eternity".

The thread goes to you, Lavender.

It must be Shirley MacLaine and Dean Martin.  The movies would be:

1.  Artists And Models

2.  Some Came Running

3.  Career

4.  Ocean's 11

5.  What a Way To Go!

6.  All In A Night's Work

7.  Cannonball Run II

 

I was also looking for Frank Sinatra movies after Princess' first answer.

Bingo. Dean and Shirley. That's what I found interesting about this question. Never realized Dean and Shirley made so many films together. 

1, Artists and Models  - 1955

2. Some Came Running -  1958

3. Career -  1959

4. Oceans 11 - 1960

5. All In A Nights Work - 1961

6. What A Way To Go. -  1964

7. Cannonball Run II -  1984

Princess got 1/2 , Miles the other 1/2. Good work both of you and thanks.

You decide who gets the thread.

Lavender, it looks like you'll have to answer this one.

Miles, The film you're asking about is - The Sun Comes Up. Starring Jeanette MacDonald, Claude Jarman Jr, Lloyd Nolan and Lassie It's a sweet film , I watch it whenever TCM airs it.

Yes, that's the one, Lavender.  TCM showed it on Mother's Day.  The story is by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, who wrote "The Yearling", which also featured Claude Jarman Jr.  Here are some highlights:

 

 

It was Jeanette MacDonald's last movie.  Nice work, Lavender.  The thread is yours.

For years he was a popular hero in B level productions. Toward the end of his career, he made a western with director Sam Peckinpah. He was also a successful busines man with holdings in real estate and oil and was very wealthy when he retired.  Who is the Virginia born actor/entrapreneur and what movie did he make with Pekinpah.
