Old Hollywood story of the day

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?
