This is a must see for Sinatra fans.
17 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this made for television movie when it aired. It was "wonderful" The whole cast was great, and Philip Casnoff was magnificent. I saw him in North And South, and a few other roles, but his portrayal of Sinatra was unreal. There were times that I started to believe that I was seeing old blue eyes himself. I recorded it both nights, but it's loaded with commercials, I would really like to get a copy of the film. I'm wondering if Casnoff did any of the singing, or was it Frank Jr. I wish Casnoff would act more, besides being a good actor, he's really good looking. Is there any way I can purchase a copy of the film? I also thought that Marcia Gaye Harden was terrific as Ava Gardner.
