Frank Sinatra...A Retrospective
Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) is considered by most people the most famous singer of popular music in American history. Through a variety of classic video and audio clips, this program will explore the career of this outstanding vocalist from his early years growing up in Hoboken, New Jersey, his success with the great “big bands” led by Harry James and Tommy Dorsey, his early film career in such classics as “Anchors Aweigh” and “On the Town”, his career struggles prior to his Oscar winning performance in “From Here to Eternity," his amazing success with Capitol and Reprise Records, and his memorable live concerts throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. Included in the program will be a full-length presentation of the award winning post-war documentary “The House I Live In," a testament to Sinatra’s life-long campaign for racial and religious tolerance.
