Product Description

Review

Juicy tidbits concerning the Mob, Marilyn, the Kennedys and other cool stuff Robbie Williams can but dream of. -- Q Magazine, June 2003

Book Description

George Jacobs is generally considered 'the last of the Rat Pack', a member of the exclusive club that has fascinated us for decades. He worked as Sinatra's valet and confidant from 1953, when Ava Gardner had just left him, until the end of his marriage to Mia Farrow in 1968. Racy and revealing, MR S. is a record of one of the longest and most outrageous mid-life crises ever as George helped Sinatra juggle his multiple mistresses - women like Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Grace Kelly and Peggy Lee. And it wasn't just women: Hollywood stars and Mafia bosses, the Kennedys and European royalty all have a part to play in Frank's glory years. But above all there was the Rat Pack who accepted George as one of their own. Dean Martin tried his comedy routines out on him and Peter Lawford did his drugs in front of him. MR S gives an insider's view of the highs and lows of life with the Rat Pack - the spectacle, the sex, the unrecounted brawls, violence, tensions and hatreds among the revellers at the wildest moveable feast of the century

This book is a must for all Sinatra fans. An honest and insightful account of life with Sinatra by the person who was most close to him for 12/13 years. This book shows some great photographs including some lovely personal shots of Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe that I had never seen before. A really excellent read, you will not want to put it down.

If this is an accurate account of Frank Sinatra and his lifestyle I can only say this was not a nice man! I have always been a fan of his music and of course his displays of temper are well documented but this book by his one time valet also highlights other less than admirable traits.

But the problem I found with this account, was that it soon descended into a
repetitive litany of Frank Sinatra's despotic excesses with his need for hookers, his association with gangsters, his spiteful practical jokes, his vendettas etc. . The people he associated with also seemed to have very little to admire, including well known film stars & celebrities and politicians.In the end, as the list of Frank Sinatra's (and indeed others) excesses mounted and mounted, I completely lost interest as so much seem contrived.

If you are interested in Frank Sinatra, the Rat Pack and that era this book is a must. You would not believe the true stories about stars we thought we knew all about eg Marilyn Monroe, JFK and Bobby. Each chapter amazes me.

I enjoyed reading about the man and his excesses, which were truly over the top. Much of what is written is already well known, but this book is a good example of how outrageously a person can behave if there is no power to stop them. Rather like a dictator or potentiat ruling with absolute power the book describes a man drunk on power with everyone afraid to point out the truth to them.
The author contradicts himself often, but this is a good read.

This book as by far exceeded all expectations I had. It is a fantastic account of the life of Frank Sinatra, by someone who probably knew him best and went through ups and downs with him.
If you are interested in a little background information on what Hollywood was really like in the 50's and 60's, then this is the book for you.
Highly recommended, not just as a biography, but as description of a lifestyle when Hollywood was still young.

The Good- Great account of Sinatra's jet set life style and the other Stars he knew and their relationship to him.
The Bad- Not enough disclosure on the authour himself, he seems like an interesting guy in his own right and I wanted to know more about him.
The Ugly- The frequent accounts of Frank and his Rat pack buddies
sleeping with prostitutes,one paragraph descibing this would have
been enough for me.

I have enjoyed every page of this most interesting and informative book. Not only featuring the escapades and life style of Frank Sinatra this book also gives an insight into the sexual and political intrigues of the film and entertainment starts of the world - warts and all. A most informative and funny book.
