about this item

From bobbysoxers to boxing, from his home to Madison Square Garden, rare and intimate photographs of The Chairman of the Board
 
A dandy, a crooner, and an actor, talented and scandalous, as close to the Kennedys as to the underworld barons, Frank Sinatra fascinates. Coming from a small town in New Jersey, the bad boy married Ava Gardner and conquered Hollywood, starring in more than 60 films and winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 1953 for his role in From Here to Eternity. It's thanks to music, however, that his talent gained worldwide recognition. Nicknamed "The Voice" by the international press, Sinatra imposed his unique style and sold more than 150 million albums in his 62-year career. Through a captivating biography and rare and intimate photographs this collection recalls his exceptional journey as a father; as a singer working with such talents as Elvis Presley, Quincy Jones, and Count Basie; as a member of the Rat Pack; on set with Burt Lancaster, Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, or Steve McQueen; and off set with John F. Kennedy, Ava Gardner, or Mia Farrow.
