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

Quotes

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.

Old Blue Eyes is back
22 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

After a short lived retirement in which he was bored out of his skull for two years Frank Sinatra returned to the entertainment world with this TV special. A few old standards of his are sung and some new songs like Send In The Clowns are featured. It's always a treat to hear the man sing, that goes without saying.

But he had as a special guest Gene Kelly and they did a couple of songs together reminding themselves We Can't Do That Any More. Time ages all of us and they may move a bit slower when they were sailors in Anchors Aweigh and On The Town and baseball players in Take Me Out To The Ballgame. But they haven't slowed down all that much.

It was like he was never away.
