good sinatra, fer a TV flicker
14 February 2003 | by (portland or) – See all my reviews

OK...i was a little wary of this four hour epic being a decent depiction of an amazing life, but it is entertaining. of course, a lot of details left by the wayside. the most being his development of friendships with the ratpack members, but i guess we can just rent "the rat pack" for that concentration. after a large magnifying glass placed on the beginning of his career, its understandable a bit of his life had to be cut down to bare essentials. it's just that, when he visits sammy davis jr in the hospital, they never showed in the movie the two of them meeting other than in an alley ten years before. but my comments become random now...was it me, or was old blue eyes portrayed by a brown eyes? i did enjoy his comments on how rocknroll was noise and unlyrical whilst in bed with mia farrow. the dean martin character was weak, but the sammy character was well cast (although not as well cast as the guy that played him in the "rat pack.") fact is, the star philip casnoff is as good a sinatra as ray liotta is...now we just need a movie about sinatra's last days. a post eighties, painting on "pm magazine," singing with bono type flick. just please don't play "my way" in it.
