Synopsis by Steve Blackburn
Many people only know him as a great singer, but during the 50-year career of Francis Albert Sinatra (1915-1998), he starred or appeared in dozens of motion pictures, winning an Academy Award for his role in the 1953 movie From Here to Eternity. Part of the Frank Sinatra: His Life and Times video series, this program covers the movie career and Hollywood connections of the versatile "Chairman of the Board." Highlights of the video include photographs, clips from trailers of Sinatra movies, clips from a behind-the-scenes documentary about the production of The Detective, and interviews with Manchurian Candidate director John Frankenheimer and screenwriter George Axelrod.
