This book, obviously, focuses on the acting side of Ole Blue Eyes' long career.

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.

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 !

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*.
