Excellent evocation of the man, the time, and the music
15 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

As a big fan of Frank Sinatra and his music, I had high hopes for this program and was not disappointed. This program's epic scope and excellent period costuming and sets really create Frank Sinatra and the way he lived his life from his humble beginnings in Hoboken, New Jersey to the heights of his fame and the affairs, friendships and loneliness in between. There is some great acting here, and Casnoff really shines as Ol' Blue Eyes. There is also admirable work by Bob Gunton as hotheaded trombonist Tommy Dorsey and Gina Gershon as Sinatra's long suffering first wife Nancy. The movie effectively recreates the atmospheres, times and places that shaped Sinatra's life, such as Depression- era New Jersey, New York City during World War II, and the hot nightclubs and booze joints of Nevada and New Jersey during the 1950's and 1960's. A must-see for a history buff or any Sinatra fan.
