Frank Sinatra: The Man and His Music (1965)

*** (out of 4)

Emmy winning concert from Frank Sinatra has him talking about many of his songs and features classics like "Come Fly With Me", "You Make Me Feel So Young", "I Get a Kick Out of You", "My Kind of Town", "Young at Heart" and "I've Got the World on a String". This is a rather interesting concert and I read at various sites that Sinatra had a bad cold when they started filming this, which is obvious in several scenes where you can see him wiping his running nose and one scene where he steps away from the mic to cough. The visual look of the concert is what you'd call laid back but I found it pretty boring visually because nothing ever happens. I don't think we need anything too flashy but moving the camera every once in a while wouldn't be a bad idea. The highlight of course is Sinatra doing the singing. Out of all the songs performed I'd say "Young at Heart" would be the highlight but his performance on all of them is very good. The stories he tells aren't among the best I've heard from him but if you're a fan then this special offers up enough nice moments to make it worth watching.
