Overview

Developed by Tina Sinatra and approved by Frank himself, Sinatra is a made-for-television mini-series following the life and times of Frank Sinatra, one of the most popular and acclaimed singers of the 20th century. Opening with his childhood in Hoboken, New Jersey, the film follows Sinatra's (Philip Casnoff) rise to the top in the '40s, through the dark days of the early '50s and his triumphant re-emergence in the mid-'50s, to his status as pop culture icon in the '60s, '70s and '80s. In between, the film hits all of the main events, including his three marriages, his connections with the Mafia and his notorious friendship with the Rat Pack. Even with the presence of Tina Sinatra as executive producer, Sinatra doesn't gloss over the more unsavory portions of Frank's life, which makes it all the more impressive. With the exception of a couple of early songs, all the music in the movie is taken from the original Sinatra recordings.

Sinatra 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

I saw this on TV back in 1992. I can't believe it took 16 years to put it out of DVD though. This is a great mini-series on two DVDs. If you love Sinatra, you'll love this movie. It was so entertaining and interesting. Now I get to watch it again. The soundtrack wasn't all that good, but the movie is great.

I haven't seen this in sixteen years. It's a great movie and it's not one of those mini-series that drags on and on. It told me so much about Sinatra in a very entertaining way all the way through. If you're curious about Sinatra and you want entertainment, get this.
