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. ...See Full Description
||"Sinatra" best film available on his life|
I am a devoted Sinatra fan. Having seen almost all the films out there, this is the best for fans who want to renew their passion to see him again. This probably is the most authentic film of his life. The project was overseen by his daughter Tina Sinatra who did a masterful job in helping produce this film. The casting is superb. It has the ring of truth following his life from childhood through all the trials and tribulations of his quest for stardom. After spending 4 hours watching this film, it gives you the feeling you had the privlege of seeing him one more time.

I AM A FAN OF FRANK SINATRA FOR MANY MANY YEARS. I VIEWED PHILIP CASNOFF IN THE SINATRA-TV STORY - HIS PEFORMANCE WAS SO BELIEVABLE THAT MANY TIMES I HAD TO REFLECT THAT I WAS NOT WATCHING SINATRA HIMSELF. I RATE HIS ACTING "EXCELLENT". I HAVE VIEWED THIS STORY A NUMBER OF TIMES. I WISH I COULD SEE IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. PLEASE PLAY IT AGAIN. THANX! CATHY

||Excellent Movie about Frank|
This is an excellent movie about Frank Sinatra and how he made himself into the professional he was. This movie shows the trials and tribulations he went trough as well as the good times.

I felt that Peter Casnoff's performance was as close as we can get to the legend himself without getting into the controversy over cloning. I am 36 years old and feel like I missed out on the best time period in music history and the man that personifies it. Awesome choice of casting and the attention to detail makes an incredibly enjoyable film.
