Description by OLDIES.com:
This film features a revealing, honest look at this national legend - from his boyhood in Hoboken, New Jersey through his phenomenal career as a singer and actor. This is an intimate portrait of Sinatra that explores the motivations behind how he lived his life. For over 60 years Sinatra entertained millions and millions of people around the world. This film features rarely seen archival footage and photos, as well as interviews with special guests including actors Robert Loggia and Jack Scalia, baseball manager Tommy Lasorda, comedian Pat Cooper, NCAA football coach Joe Paterno, music historian Joe Varsalona and author/historian Gay Talese.
There's little that can be said about Ol' Blue Eyes that hasn't already been said; from the classic singing career, to appearances in numerous films, to his Vegas residency, and dubious contacts in the underworld, Sinatra is set to be mythologized for the rest of eternity. But his sole aim was to provide entertainment to the public no matter what he did, and his legions of fans will testify to a mission accomplished for the now sadly departed star. This release offers an overview of his life and career, beginning with his upbringing in Hoboken, New Jersey, then chartering his incredible rise to prominence. A fascinating document of a monumental life, THE MAN AND THE MYTH is a wonderful testament to Sinatra's life.
