Book Description

21 Oct 2010
In the scores of posthumous tributes paid to Frank Sinatra after his death in 1998, most focused on his extraordinary reign as "The Voice" of twentieth-century pop music. But Sinatra was much more than a music icon. He was also one of the most popular movie stars of the 1940s, '50s, and '60s--an Academy-Award winning actor with some sixty film credits to his name. He starred in some of the most iconic films of the twentieth century and with some of the biggest names of the day. There were his dancing days with Gene Kelly in Anchors Aweigh and On the Town; his acclaimed dramatic turns in From Here to Eternity and The Manchurian Candidate; and his signature Rat Pack movies such as Ocean's Eleven. Sinatra: Hollywood His Way is a complete, film by film exploration of this true Hollywood legend. His screen history is vividly brought to life through illuminating reviews, behind-the-scenes stories, and hundreds of rare color and black-and-white photographs, making this the ultimate guide to the films of Frank Sinatra and an essential in the library of any fan.

Product Description

Review

"Voice of 20th-century music Frank Sinatra was also an Oscar-winning actor with a personal life that was more fascinating than his professional one. This book is packed with images, some rarely seen, as well as behind-the-scenes stories and reviews of his greatest films including On The Town, From Here to Eternity, Pal Joey and Ocean's Eleven."

--The Daily Express

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice in Hollywood 6 Dec 2010
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is definitely a boon for Sinatra fans; but it is not Sinatra as the Voice, but as the movie star. There are lots of pictures, at least one if not several on every other page. The book starts with the movie `Higher and Higher' from 1943 and ends with his brief appearance in 1991's `Listen Up! The Lives of Quincy Jones'. Each film's story is told including " tidbits" such as in `On the Town' Sinatra had to wear a hairpiece and padding in the rear of his pants. Each film also lists the director, screenplay and major cast members.

This is an interesting coffee table book both for fans of Sinatra and of movies. Fans of both would appreciate it.
