From Here to Eternity - Maggio's death
From Here to Eternity: Sinatra, Rumors, Myths and Casting
On top of being a celebrated vocalist, Frank Sinatra found praise for his many cinematic roles, which spanned from musical comedies to dramatic features. The most significant of these, however, was his supporting turn in the film From Here to Eternity , which is arguably discussed more for his turn in the film than anything else, despite being a top quality film from the Golden Age of the Hollywood Studio System. In this film, Sinatra plays the third lead. He is Maggio, the wisecracking best friend of Private Prew, a loner who lives by his own code of ethics and communicates more with his bugle than he does with words. Throughout the film, he is targeted for persecution by a sadistic stockade sergeant, Fatso Judson played by Ernest Borgnine, whose bullying progressively and quite painfully drives Maggio to the ground. By the early fifties, Sinatramania that had seen his rise to superstardom had faded out, and his career was floundering.
The film had all the earmarks of a great film. It was helmed by the master editor turned director, Fred Zinnemann. It was beautifully shot and cut.
