Growing up in the 50's we were certainly aware of Frank Sinatra. His youngest daughter produced this movie of his biography. My husband and I thought it was excellent. We enjoyed how she incorporated the songs he sang with the period of his life.

It's About Time!!!!!

"I've been waiting for this miniseries to come out to DVD for the longest time!! (I've almost wore out the copy that I taped when it was on CBS in the early 90's) Truthfully,I almost thought that it would never make it to DVD-but was VERY,VERY pleasantly suprised to see that it is finally coming!! Based on the book written by Tina Sinatra about her father.(Also a very good read!)With a cast of top-notch actors who turn in steller performances,this is definately one of the best miniseries,if not THE best that I have ever seen!!!"
This is a GREAT representation of Sinatra's life

"This is the most detailed and accurate documentary of Frank Sinatra out there. Tina Sinatra, his daughter was a producer of this film so it is as close to the real thing as it gets.Philip Casnoff has the opportunity to be Frank, and does so very well. He is VERY believable. You can tell that he took time to study Frank very hard because he picked up his accent and body movements. This film starts well, at the beginning! It shows the odds that were against him and his great desire to sing. He begins his career in the Hoboken 4, and sings "Shine" which becomes somewhat a hit. The 4 hour long movie goes through his life, depicting his rise to stardom as he sings with Harry James, and Tommy Dorsey. It also takes you through many loves and many movies that he filmed like On the Town, and Pal Joey. The film even portrays the acedemy award ceremony where he wins best oscar for From Here To Eternity. When I watched this movie, I felt like I was really watching Frank's life being lived in front of me. You hear his music all throughout the film. After you watch Sinatra, check out a book and cd set called Frank Sinatra An American Legend. The cd contains most of the music that he sang in the movie as well as commericals and promotions that he did!If you have always wanted to know how Frank lived it, checks this movie out. It is as realistic as it gets."
Kudos to Tina

"At first, I thought Casnoff was a poor choice...after all, who could possibly play Sinatra, a cultural institution? I should've trusted his daughter to choose the right actor. Philip Casnoff was perfect. Each time I see the film, I like him better and better. There was an edge to his portrayal that fits the Sinatra who lives in my head. I thought Gina Gershon was wonderful as the long-suffering Nancy Sinatra, Sr."
