Storyline

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

Sinatra: You Will Be My Music-What Class ****
25 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Highest rating to this Frank Sinatra special. Frank was 57 when he made this show in 1973. Guest star was his often movie co-star, Gene Kelly, who at 61, could still hoof it when it came to dancing. His display of it with Sinatra were great.

Sinatra came out of retirement to do this show. After viewing it, you have to wonder why he retired to begin with. He first sings "You Will Be My Music" which essentially becomes the theme of the show.

Frank was never better when it came to one liners explaining that a telephone operator didn't know who he was, couldn't spell his name and hung up on him when he sang.

His rendition of Send in the Clowns was phenomenal.

Nice to have seen Lucille Ball and Sammy Davis Jr. in the audience cheering The Chairman of the Board on. They had plenty to cheer about.
