Returning from retirement, Frank Sinatra gives a concert that includes both old standards like "I Get a Kick Out of You" as well as newer fare such as "Send in the Clowns". Much of the program consists of Sinatra solo, but he is reunited with former MGM co-star Gene Kelly during one charming segment. Written by Azure_Girl

Did You Know?


Frank Sinatra: For instance I remember when I first came out here to make a movie. I was young and didn't know too much about acting and makeup and all that stuff. I did a little thing - a little number called - "Higher and Higher," which we all know and love and quote from time to time in our literary circles.

Ol' Blue Eyes is Back (1973)

*** (out of 4)

Frank Sinatra came back from his brief retirement with this concert special that mixes several classics with some of his newer songs. As with the A Man and His Music specials, this film here gets most of its charm from Sinatra poking fun at himself and having that charm on overdrive as he talks about himself. "I Get a Kick Out of You", "I've Got the World on a String", "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Send in the Clowns". The highlight of the show is when Sinatra takes a seat and makes a few jokes about some of his earlier roles and then we see clips from a "singing sailor" movie, which is when Gene Kelly comes out for a duet on "We Can't Do That Anymore", which is certainly the highlight of the concert. Kelly dances around to "Free and Easy" as Sinatra does his thing. The entire film is certainly worth watching if you're a fan of the two men.
