The Cinematic Legacy of Frank Sinatra (Paperback)

David Wills


In this book, to be released for the centenary of Sinatra's birth, fresh archival evidence attests to the man's indelible mark on the world of cinema. Author David Wills marshals a rich photographic collection to re-present Sinatra as an icon of the silver screen, as recognisable and as lauded for his effortless cool and on-screen sangfroid as for his ubiquitous crooning voice. In a dramatic career spanning some 55 motion pictures and four decades of film and fashion, here Sinatra can be seen - in over 200 full-colour, some never-before-seen shots - as the crucial link between Humphrey Bogart and Marlon Brando, James Cagney and Steve McQueen. Whilst the voice and recordings rightly remain celebrated, this exciting new volume refocuses the lens of history to find Sinatra, centre-stage, in Hollywood's golden age. With contributing essays from all three Sinatra children.
