Movie Details

Initially produced as a televised birthday tribute in 1990, this program acts as a brief retrospective of the long life and career of the legendary Frank Sinatra. Sinatra's rise from a street-wise New Jersey kid to a media icon is recounted by hosts Robert Wagner and Roger Moore. Archived footage of his numerous movie roles and musical performances is interspersed with comments and remembrances from fellow superstars like Gene Kelly and Shirley Maclaine. Highlights include actor Tom Selleck recalling Sinatra's guest appearance on Magnum, P.I., footage of Sinatra relaxing at home, and a replay of a duet with Elvis, performed on television upon his return from the military. ~ Sarah Block, Rovi
