I just wanted to tell Mrs. Sinatra that her book was so wonderfully honest and made me feel that I got a chance to know Mr. Sinatra. She was able to let the reader be a flt on the wall during her love affair with her husband. it was a touching but more very exciting to understand the events from her point of view. How romantic he was. How gracious and philanthropic he was. And a pretty good crooner to. The last few pages were hard to read, but they were beautiful and showed me that Mr. Sinatra may have been Chairman of the Board, but Mrs. Sinatra was CEO. Please thank her for sharing part of her life with us.
Would someone PLEASE do me the honour of ensuring Mrs. Sinatra sees this note – I’d be beyond grateful. Thank you so much! I’m putting my address here so that, if she wants to reply, she’ll be able to…. With the subject in mind, I’d like to think she’d want to comment!
Mrs. Sinatra ~ You wrote about Frank using the name Charlie Neat to make reservations and in signing notes to you — my Grandad’s name was Charlie NeatE!! My Dad’s name is Charles as well but is known as Bud. He is also a huge fan of Frank and has books, albums and videos; no tickets stubs, though, as he didn’t see a concert in person. I’d love to hear from you about this! Thank you so much ~ Linda (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
Thanks for your comment. I wish I were in a position to contact Barbara Sinatra, but I am not. However, your message might be seen by someone who can contact her, tho I find this unlikely. Still, thanks for reading and commenting.

If anyone has any information on the recording date the radio commercial duet Frank did with Rosemary Clooney for Ford Motors in 1959(for J. Walter Advertising Agency), I’d appreciate it! It is a recording that is undocumented in any Sinatra book or discograpghy, yet I have the record of this. In fact, the Sinatra estate(FS, Jr, Nancy, and Tina) tried to get it from me via their attorney Robert Finklestien back in the late-1990’s.
Also, Frank Sinatra produced a movie in 1960 called “X-15.” It starred Charles Bronson and Mary Tyler Moore(in her first featrure film role). This, too, is undocumented in any Sinatra tome. Yet, I have the phonograph record of the radio spots promoting the movie voiced by frank himself. Why has no one acknowledged this film with Frank as the producer???
With $350,000 assigned for primary shooting, with an additional $72,500 for post-production work, by August 1960, pre-production had moved from Hope Enterprises (Hope’s film company) to Frank Sinatra’s Essex Productions.
Just wondering if you could help with a little question here. I remember reading a story a long time ago about a meeting that took place soon after Frank Sinatra’s 80th birthday party tribute show. The story went that both Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen paid Frank a visit at his home where they sang songs around the piano and joked and swapped stories for a few hours. Frank was supposed to have really enjoyed it & suggested they come back again soon. Do you have any idea what songs they may have sang that evening or any of the banter that took place? I find it fascinating that such an event could have taken place & am very curious for any more info on it.
Kind regards & best wishes

I have a record/acetate I think by frank sinatra. It is a private recording on the hmv label side a is the stars will remember and the b side is surrender, I think. I can’t read the writing clearly as the writing is swirly. I don’t know if this is a private recording by mr sinatra and would love to find out more about it. Any ideas anyone?
I would like to talk to someone about a montage’ I created of Mr Sinatras’ life through pictures… please contact me at [email protected]
could you tell me where i can view or dl that 1961 seattle concert you talk about?
that youtube link doesnt work.
I think the Seattle Concert you are talking about was June 9,1957.It can be found on the deluxe set “Sinatra-Best Of The Best”.2 CDs. As far as I know,there is no video of this concert available.
Would anyone be interested in receiving free (I’ll pay postage), two Sinatra CDs? The first is entitled ‘A Portrait of Frank Sinatra’ and is a 2 disc set containing 44 tracks. The second is entitled ‘Christmas Memories’ and features 3 Sinatra tracks, the rest being well known artists such as Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. These are part of a large collection of CDs which I’m now breaking up.
I have been searching for a cd or dvd of the Sinatra Concert on 2nd of December 1961 as I was there in the front row and every other him every time he came to Australia if a copy of cd or dvd is available I would love to get them I have seen them on youtube and I agree I think it was one of his best.
I have the cd now but would love the DVD as it has been taken off youtube.
Hi , i was wondering how to get a response through a letter to the surviving members of the sinatra family .my father who will be 80 on the 9th october of this year has been a huge fan of frank sinatra and his voice, i would wish for a letter just wishing my father a happy birthday from either frank jnr, nancy or tina sinatra.Iknow this is a big ask , and all my hopes ,very kind regards c.p.challis.
My tribute to my idol Frank Sinatra
How can I purchase one CD of Frank’s, Cycles recorded in 1968
Hi, It’s available on Amazon.com under the category of CD’s for $4.95 plus some postage.
Hi…I have a 78rpm Parlophone record of Frank Sinatra singing From The Bottom Of My Heart with the Harry James Orchestra. I believe it was recorded in 1939 and was his first commercial recording. It is in good condition and I was hoping to sell it. Could you please advise me of it’s aprox. ( Australian) value and perhaps where
or who may be interested in the item.
Hi all i need help i recently purchase a biulding in the middle of country. This place was a old movie theatre in the 50 and 60’s . i found an old public service announcement in the attic. It is Frank Sinatra for christmas seals. It was made (in my best guess) in the late 50’s in his movie trailor. it is NOT the one with jerry mathers. It is also strang that he is in a shirt no tie no jacket and his sleeves are rooled up some. i have never seen anything with frank were he is not perfectly dressed. this to me looks like a test film but got released. i have tried everywhere to find out about it. please feel free to email me and i can send pictures any help would be nice. i would like to get appraised and sell i am not a collecter and have no need for it.
With Mr. Sinatra due to play the Peabody Auditorium here in March 2016 i thought perhaps we might do a phone interview. I am a columnist for theDaytona Beach Hometown News with a circulation of 100,000 plus net. Frank Jr. and i are the same age and in 1963 i was detained by police at gunpoint on Mulholland Dr when i blundered into the ransom drop zone. Perhaps I could help sell a few tickets with a good personal story. Dan Smith, Hometown news Daytona Beach Fl.

Pianist Pete Sokolow will accompany me for this Centennial survey of the great songs immortalized by “Ol’ Blue Eyes. ”
Of special note – Sinatra’s connection to our city will be emphasized with his signature tune, “New York, New York ” – and also with “The Brooklyn Bridge,” which he introduced in the 1947 film, It Happened In Brooklyn.
There will also be a collection of Sinatra memorabilia on display.
Call 718-921-1900 for dinner reservations – or raise a birthday toast to “The Chairman of the Board ” at the bar.

I’m not sure of the traffic to this Sinatra page, hopefully amazing amounts of traffic!! (As deserved)
I am not trying to sell you any Sinatra – Rat Pack memorabilia. I’d rather sell to you the nostalgia and of the most epic, beautiful time ever!! If you can’t transform back to these ages, it’s okay, their are wonderful reminders everyday!
Be grateful for what you’ve encountered, as I am.. Though I know it’s all me, thank you Dean & Frank, In know you’re looking after me! I will be at the top!
I’m Max Cattani from Italy and I’m a great lover of the Frank Sinatra Tommy Dorsey recordings.
I’m seriously thinking about buying the 5 CD set The Song is You, which features all the Dorsey-Sinatra recordings, plus the first Stordhal Session and a lot of rare radio performances, including the farewell by Sinatra to the Dorsey Orchestra, a very important moment in music history , because it was the beginning of the Sinatra we all know.
But I got to know that recently has been released a 4 CD collection entitled The Complete Studio Recordings. It presents, as it says, all the studio recordings by Sinatra with Dorsey, with many alternate takes, but no Stordhal session and no radio performances.
I should think that the RCA box set is much more worthwhile, but I only have one doubt.
I want to be sure that in the RCA 5 disks the recordings are presented with an authentic sound quality, with no faked stereo effects of unwanted amplifications. I prefer the original 78 sound, or the master sound but with no elaboration or filtering, because when this happens it makes me very nervous and gives me the impression of having a phony product.
Because there seems to be a lot of people who are very into this subject, which one of the two releases would you advise me to purchase?
Please answer me at my e-mail address

Main location most want a Star thesedays is ion frt of "HOLLYWOOD & HIGHLAND""DOLBY THEATRE"-(680l H. Blvd) where they holds annual *OSCARS. Tv's Et once buried own time capsule underneath when still under construction & not to be unearthed for another century. It was to celebrate end of past century & had the shows memorabilia & (3) vids "IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE" "SINGIN' IN RAIN" & "WIZARD OF OZ" ET was shot on old side of same lot as PARAMOUNT. Marvelously I got to stay in same motel all (3) vacations-(777n. vine) & couild see PARAMOUNT WATER TOWER FROM MOTEL! Among my most screwed-up things I did or didn't do, was not visiting "CAPOITOL RECORDS" (AKA: "THE HOUSE *SINATRA BUILT" & there is a huge Mural of him nearby, I didn't know how to use this throwaway camera-0(April 19899)
For yrs I wanted to get a shot of that Mural w/."CAPTOL RECOIRDS" same shot & in the background, duh???
By the way a famed HOLLYWOOD MURAL-(got tons of shots of it & is on tons of postcards) "YOU ARE THE STAR" on Wilcox & just off H. Blvd. Positive most of you saw it on cards, pix,etc though. I also visited a few legendary GRAVEYARDS/CEMETARIES IN THE AREA, not to appear morbid, but stars also not only visited each a lot, getting married, picking at final resting place & now that this town insists on tearing down it's history, these places are now often true fans can get to a favourite star. (ANYONE ELSE FEEL THE SAME, OR VISTED ANY?)
(*-OSCAR marker) Also of course dud visit a couple studios, my fav is WARNER BROS VIP TOUR in Burbank (museum alone wax with it to me anyhow!), reason being it’s virtually intact.

CONDO’S NOW SIT ON WHAT WA THEE GRANDEST OF ALL “DREAM FACTORIES?” Didn’t visit UNIVERSAL-(most are in Burbank by the way) because we have one down here. & Fox-(no tours) More about PARAMOUNT ery nice tour & old RKO RADIO-(same lot)( (another time)-(MELROSE & GOWER) I will submit & again typically of this era They plan to also ow tear down that famous old RKO RADIO GLOBE-(Joseph P. Kennedy had it installed in ’29)
Having a wee-bit in typing on here right now, always fixes itself, please bare with me & again please of course reply on here, but drop me a line as well on anything *FRANCIS ALBERT, FILMS, BOXING,etc)
(HIS MUSIC)>-(My top 5 all-time favourite songs/numbers by *FRANCIS (Albert)SINATRA>
1st “IT WAS A VERY GOD YEAR” (l965) (a top of Capitol Records/Nelson Riddleat age 50, I also like this my all-time fav song by any artist!)-(EASY TO DIND & SAVE ON YOUTUBE!) (4:12)
2nd “IN THE WEEL SMALL HRS OF THE MORNING” (l958) (as u grand folks know,always considered his post AVA year & mid to late ’50’s brought out the best him in him musically
3. “SUMMER WIND”-(also check out underrated 1984 film “Pope of Greenwich Village” W/M. Rourke & Eric Roberts)
4. “ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD”-(superb, but yet another thing between him & *MARLON BRANDO-(l924-2004) that further feuled the fire, *BRANDO would only call him “THE SINGER” ^ &FRANK would just call him (“MUMBLES”)-(though the hatred 1st started with’54’s all-time great motion picture & 8 time sweeping *”On the Waterfront”)
5th fav of his “FLY ME TO THE MOON”-(also see 1991’s find film “0nce Around” w/*Deyfuss & *Holly Hunter, this classic number is superbly used!!!)
(ALSO-RANS: “ANGEL EYES”-(arguable thee single most brilliant, yet depressing song by anyone ever! Another movie it’s used superbly throughout is 1995’s *OSCAR WINNING *(Best Actor)*Nicolas Cage “Leaving Las Vegas” but by Sting instead though)
& WORST:”Mama Will Bark”-(notorious)
& ALBUM”ONLY THE LONELY” (l9858) (His already gone son dubbed this “The Suicide Album”)
& MOVIES-(out of 58 )>
21st fav. “SOME CAME RUNING” (l958-M-G-M) (maybe not his actual finest hour, but just my fav. same goes w/*Scorsese) (superb score again by *E. Bernstein)
2. *”FROM HERE TO ETERNITY” (l953-Columbia) (8 time *AMPAS sweeper as well & his comeback pivotal pt of Maggio was always meant for Eli Wallach. Remade as a good (***) 1979-tvmini-series with NATALIE WOOD!)
3. “THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE” (l962) (Absolutely brilliant filmmaking on every fight!!! & despite what lots say about it being pulled for yrs due to the 1963 JFKJ assassinatioin, *Frank on a 3-4pt Larry King interviuew set the record straight. More of a connection/metaphor of a US pres killing is the powerful 1954 Thriller “Suddenly” This deserved a lot more ’62 *OSCAR attention! Only the 93ytr old AngelaLansbury scored a nod, (Remade only fairly (**1/2) w/*Denzel & *Streep)
4. “The Man With the Golden Arm:” (l955-UA)( (He always voted this 2nd & final acting nomination his finest work as an actor. Close-call 4-me, between this per & “Suddenly) & yet another superb music score by *Elmer Bernstein)
5th fav. picture of his “Suddenly-(SEE ABOVE)
“Anchors Aweigh” (l945)=MGM)HOLLYWOOD never looked so beautiful w/this great musical in which Gene Kelly-(l9l2-96) scored his sole shot at an *ACADEMY AWARD)
WORST: close-call, but his most notoriously lousy was 1948’s “Kissing Bandit” (**)
LAST: 1984’s stunningly awful (*_) “Cannonball Run II” seemingly just phone it in in this god awful so called comedy)
THANX & AGAIN, I RESPECT MOST OF HIS LEGIONS OG FANS OPINIUONS & ON ANYTHING MUSIC & MOVIES!!!
I thought that this group might be interested to see that Sotheby’s is offering a selection of items from the collection of Barbara and Frank Sinatra at auction next week. More information can be found here: http://sothebys.com/sinatra
Highlights include original paintings by Frank Sinatra himself and also a large selection of bound scripts from his films. The exhibition is free and now open to the public at Sotheby’s New York, November 30 – December 5.
Why isn’t Ring A Ding Ding available on CD here in the States? I went looking for it on Amazon and can only find it from UK sellers.
Sometime in the 1940s, Mr Sinatra did a PSA about discrimination and hatred. I remember he talked to several kids and asked them if overcoming the hatred they were showing wasn’t why the fathers and brothers were fighting the war. Any idea what the film was entitled or if it’s available?
Can anyone who manages this site, or group can assist me with some photos I have of Frank’s visit to Israel? Any feedback would be most appreciated. Feel free to reach me via email [email protected]
Hello, the first comment that done in 2011 that was on the topic of a book. Was it a book by Nancy Sr or her daughter Nancy? What was the name of the book?
Is this site still up and running? I have an original pic of Frank at a war bond rally in 1942 that I would like to get more info on it.
My husband, who passed away in 2018, was an avid fan of Frank Sinatra, He has records, books, pictures (not originals) , etc, I am planning to move and cannot take all these items with me,
Do you know of anyone who might be interested in purchasing any or all of these items, I really need to find someone who truly would be interested in them
Thank you so much for your time,
If there are any collectors on this forum or if you know of any please reach out to me. My father was a fan of Frank and I have many old albums & books. I also have many Bing Crosby albums. I would like to ensure these great singers music continues to be carried on. I can be reached at contact below.
Thank you for your time,
