big disappointment
25 July 2012 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I have had great expectations about the TV series, because I adore Hollywood musicals but felt disappointed. I could not understand the choice of subjects and stories about them. The authors paid a lot of attention to some honored artists, but some artists are not paid attention at all. It seems the creators meticulously removed almost any mention of Frank Sinatra from music history. They said a few words in a series of 40's and forgot about him until the end of the series of the 60s. Sinatra was one of the ten box-office actors of the 50-60s. He was a singer the number one in the 50's and number two in the 60's. He starred in 15 musicals and received a Golden Globe for the musical 'Pal Joey'. His songs was nominated 7 times for Academy Award for Best Original Song in musicals and they got 3 of them. Even when they spoke about 'Robin and the 7 Hoods' it seems it was done to say something nasty about The Rat Pack. They are taking the time for an unsuccessful movie 'Let's Make Love' with Marilyn Monroe and her death, bad movies with Elvis. But nothing about 'High Society', 'The Joker Is Wild', 'Pal Joey'. They paid a huge time to Gene Kelly. He certainly was a brilliant dancer, choreographer and director. But Sinatra starred in 3 great box-office musicals with Kelly. Nothing about Sinatra. They said Marlon Brando was singing in 'Guys and Dolls' but nothing about Sinatra. The said about Louis Jourdan and Maurice Chevalier in 'Can-Can' but almost nothing about top-billed Sinatra. He starred with Jane Russell, Shirley MacLaine and Debbie Reynolds, that were hosts. Almost nothing about Sinatra. Great disappointment.
