The Cinematic Legacy of Frank Sinatra

Be the first to review this product

Film history is filled with stars created by the studio system. Occasionally, however, a performer emerged who, against all preconceived odds of what a star should be or look like, knocked down the walls of convention by becoming nothing other than what they already were. Frank Sinatra was the embodiment of this fundamental truth. The legacy of his work stands apart from many of his contemporaries, who essentially based their performances on an extension of a core character type. Sinatra, however, was able to take his signature persona and translate it successfully into many film genres first as the comedic song-and-dance man, then as the dramatic actor and romantic lead, and finally as the tough guy and action hero.In The Cinematic Legacy of Frank Sinatra, David Wills presents a stunning collection highlighting the work of one of Hollywoods greatest stars. Sinatras roles varied greatly in such classics as From Here to Eternity, Guys and Dolls, The Man With the Golden Arm and The Manchurian Candidate. Pairing more than two hundred first-generation photos with reflections on Sinatra from costars and work associates, this is an unforgettable showcase of the actors transformation from world-famous singer, to movie star, to Academy Award winner, and finally, to one of the most enduring icons in cinema history.
