Not Bad
23 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a good bio of Sinatra. It was produced by his daughter, Tina.

The only problem I had with it was that she chose to omit the kidnapping of Frank, Jr., in 1963. I would guess that her father told her not to cover it.

Otherwise, it seemed like a true adaption of Sinatra's life and times. The film pulls no punches with his loves, either. We see that he truly was an undevoted husband.

All in all, I recommend this film to anyone who liked The Chairman of The Board. Philip Casnoff is truly delightful in the title role. And Gina Gershon is believable as Nancy, Sr.
