The second annual TV special thrills from start to finish, with unforgettable performances of signature songs "Fly Me To The Moon," "Luck Be A Lady" and "That's Life." Frank is joined by daughter Nancy in a playful duet in this delightful hour of music. Written by
The orchestra layout plan was extremely important for Frank Sinatra's hearing. He was hard of hearing in his left ear, therefore, the piano, bass, and drummer were positioned directly to his right side in the orchestra set up. See more »
Old blue eyes and Nancy carry the hour with favorite tunes...
Another FRANK SINATRA show from '66 has him opening with FLY ME TO THE MOON and closing with PUT YOUR DREAMS AWAY FOR A LITTLE WHILE.
It's a breezy hour show with Sinatra looking as jaunty and comfortable before an audience as he ever did. He seems in a bouncy mood as he goes through a whole slew of his favorite songs, as well as a brief duet sequence with Nancy, who says she'd been in the business for six months when this show aired and already had a couple of Gold platters.
His songs include: FLY ME TO THE MOON, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD, MOONLIGHT IN VERMONT and NOBODY TILL SOMEBODY LOVES YOU.
Then Nancy came on and sang two of her hits, BANG, BANG HE SHOT ME DOWN and ON Broadway before dad joins her for YES, SIR THAT'S MY BABY and DOWNTOWN. And finally, the two of them join in for her hit song, THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR WALKING.
Sinatra winds up his segment of the show with IT WAS JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS, MY HEART STOOD STILL, LOVE IS BEAUTIFUL, LUCK BE A LADY (at his zesty best), THAT'S LIFE, GRANADA and CHICAGO.
With Nelson Riddle and Gordon Jenkins arrangements, it's a solid show for Sinatra fans to enjoy and a bit of nostalgia too.
