This highly acclaimed mini-series chronicles the celebrated performer's meteoric rise to fame, from his boyhood in Hoboken, New Jersey to his triumphant performance at Madison Square Garden in 1974. A true-to-life biography with memorable Sinatra songs.
From humble Hoboken to luxurious Los Angeles, Frank Sinatra's life has been one hell of a ride. The actor-singer left behind his New Jersey roots to win the hearts of listeners as a romantic crooner. He sang such hits as "My Wonderful One." Later, he boosted his fame by appearing in such screen classics as "From Here to Eternity" and "The Manchurian Candidate." However, life was not always as kind to Sinatra -- and sometimes he had no one to blame except the man in the mirror. His marriages to first wife Nancy, Ava Gardner and Mia Farrow epitomized the oil-and-water mixture of show business and romance. Amid these triumphs and trials, Sinatra always stayed loyal to the one thing that never abandoned him: his audience.
"Sinatra" took seven years to complete. Originally, Frank Sinatra had planned to write an autobiography, but he abandoned that idea because he felt only film could tell his story as well as include his music. Although Sinatra had neither screenplay approval nor any participation in the shoot, he gave his approbation to the executive producer -- his daughter Tina -- to make the film.
