Storyline

Billed as the "full-hour musical spectacular that won Nancy Sinatra the coveted Hollywood Star of Tomorrow award," this 1967 NBC-TV special, sponsored by Royal Crown Cola, is hosted by Nancy and features Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Lee Hazlewood and Frank Sinatra (billed as 'A Very Close Relative'). Brother Frank, Jr. makes a cameo appearance (and doesn't sing a note). Conspicuously absent from the program is Nancy's biggest hit: "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'". Written by filmfactsman

An eyeful! and what eyes!

Nancy Sinatra's TV special (originally aired on the night of Dec. 11, 1967) has arrived on DVD in immaculate condition. It has built up such a mystique over the years that most people probably expect GENIUS. Well, there's a touch of genius in it. It's campy, most of all, and could benefit from better pacing, but if you love Nancy Sinatra you'll love "Movin' With Nancy". To review it is to review her. She wears a variety of wigs and outfits, incredible eye make-up, she shakes her groove thang with Sammy Davis, Jr., cuddles up with father Frank (who is delightfully loose, warm and paternal), and trades stiff quips with so-droll-he's-drifting-off Dean Martin. My favorite part of the show is Nancy singing "This Town" to a host of mannequins. I enjoyed "Younger Than Springtime" and the tribute to Ol Blue Eyes. The RC Cola commercials from 1967 are included as well, and are wonderful (Nancy in the white "cell" is breathtaking--striking poses like Mariah Carey's big sister). But the show just doesn't MOVE! There's no urgency in her singing, no passion in the staging of the songs, odd and/or awkward touches and cut-aways, variety-show choreography. The songs play well on CD, but coupled with the visual, you ache for more excitement in both. It's a mixed-bag. Nancy-fanatics will just rate it a '10' and end the argument.
