    This book, obviously, focuses on the acting side of Ole Blue Eyes long career But it keeps you very much up to date with what Frank was doing musically while he was filming The Manchurian Candidate or Dirty Dingus Magee And that s really the point the author is making There are 2 separate careers going on here, simultaneously, most of us would have been perfectly happy with just 1 of them It s well researched written, if a little opinionated Performances, or the films in which they are contained, are rated very much by the author, usually to the point of finding other contemporary reviews that agree with him That said, it s still an engrossing read I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good inside Hollywood story.

    Wow, what a life this man lead Though the title suggests that it only covers his film career, this book gives an in depth look into all aspects of Frank Sinatra, including his four rocky marriages and the rumors of his connections to the Mafia.Includes thorough synopses and reviews of each movie made in his near 50 year career As a side note, the author seemed a bit glowing in his critical analysis of Sinatra s performances and temperament, even for the least of his films Still, having seen several of them, much of that laud is deserved No one worked as hard as Frank in EVERY medium.Recommended to Sinatra music and film fans alike.

    Great biography of Frank Sinatra which concentrates on the many movies he made and stories surrounding Frank s life during each, the performances he gave, and the others with whom he worked If you like Sinatra and his films, this is a must read 2 of 120 books pledged to read review during 2016

    Loved it Didn t know much about Frank Sinatra s films only his recordings Interesting reviews of ALL his films This is for film buffs


  6. says:

    Very good book, except too much detail about the films Sinatra was in The plot and info on all the other players was too much for me The 60% of the book dealing directly with Sinatra was 5.
